A logic model is a set of claims about how an organization produces something of value. It allows us to define and explore the links between what we do and how our efforts affect others. A logic model tells an organization’s story and explains why a program or the organization exists. This lesson, developed by National Arts Strategies in partnership with Peter Frumkin, Ph.D., can be used by your team to create a logic model for any of your programs or services.
