Developing a Theory-of-Change Logic Model For Your Program
Whether you are a grantseeker developing a proposal for start-up funds or a grantee with a program already in operation, developing a logic model can strengthen your program. Logic models help identify the factors that will impact your program and enable you to anticipate the data and resources you will need to achieve success.
This piece walks the reader through the process of developing a theory-of-change logic model by addressing issues such as defining the problems being addressed; quantifying the scope of needs or assets that makes the case for your selection of the problem to address; identifying the factors that may influence your ability to create change; applying best practice research that supports your strategies; etc.
The end of the document provides a useful tool - the Logic Model Development Program Planning Template - to visually represent your theory-of-change.
