Defining Program Logic and Intended Results; Logic Models and Theories of Change - (10760) - 1 Day - Limited Spots

About the Course

This workshop delves into logic models and their underlying theory of change: key tools for successful program design, performance measurement and evaluation. To many, the structure and content of logic models can be a barrier to their successful development and use. The workshop will focus on the various ways of structuring logic models to capture each program’s unique theory of change, and how they can be developed to optimize both learning and utilization.

Course duration: 1 day

For who: Those working in evaluation, performance measurement, or program management in the government or not-for-profit sectors who want to better understand the core concepts and best practices in understanding, developing and reviewing logic models and theories of change.

This workshop can be taken as a stand-alone or as part of Intersol’s Logic Models and Key Results for PM and Evaluation Training Series which also includes:

This workshop can be applied as a professional development credit for Credentialed Evaluators.

Course Format

This course is delivered using Internet-Based Video Conferencing, specifically Zoom Meetings, as well as other web-based collaboration tools that can greatly enhance learning, sharing and working collaboratively in an online medium.

Using a case study approach and interactive exercises and discussions, participants will have the opportunities to: apply what they have learned by developing and critiquing logic models and theories of change; share their own experiences; and develop strategies for future success.

In addition, special topics of interest to the participants will be covered, such as nested logic models, or giving feedback on logic models.

Specific Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe how logic models and their underlying theories of change are used in program planning, performance measurement, and evaluation​
  • Identify the key components of logic models, including the theory of change; the relative benefits and limitations in their use; and the wide range of formats available​
  • Understand the linkages between program logic / results and a Departmental Results Framework / organizational logic model, ​
  • Determine the key steps in their development, including a range of possible approaches, and
  • Know emerging best practices and lessons learned, and where to find additional resources.

Learning Facilitators

The workshop will be co-led by Credentialed Evaluators Jennifer Birch-Jones and Dr. Natalie Kishchuk, both of whom have extensive experience in performance measurement and evaluation in the government and not-for-profit sectors, as well as expertise in adult learning.
