  • Applying Program Logic Modeling to Program Grant Funding: A Case Study of Barbados’ Cultural Action Fund
  • What is a Logic Model ?
    • Logic model = diagrammatic representation of broad overarching theory behind program or intervention.
    • Sets stage to explain the intervention logic
    • Create clear picture of the evaluation question
    • A logic model depicts the what, who, the why
  • Logic Model Questions: What?
    • Components
      • Groups of closely-related activities in a program.
    • Activities
      • The things the program does to work toward its desired outcomes
  • Logic Model Questions: Who?
    • Target groups
      • Are the individuals, groups or communities at whom the program’s activities are directed.
  • Logic Model Questions: Why?
    • Outcomes
      • Changes the program hopes to achieve.
      • There is a differentiation between short-term and long-term outcomes.
  • Short-term vs Long-term Outcomes
    • Short-term outcomes are the direct results of the program on its participants.
      • They show why the program activities will lead to the long-term outcomes.  
    • Long-term outcomes reflect the consequences of your program in the broader community.
      • They tend to be the ultimate goals of the program.  
  • Why Create a Logic Model ?
    • Advantages for evaluation purposes:
      • summarize the key elements of your program
      • explain the rationale behind program activities
      • clarify difference between activities and intended outcomes of program;
      • show the cause-and-effect relationships between activities and th outcomes
        • i.e, which activities are expected to lead to which outcomes;
      • help you identify the critical questions for your evaluation
  • Why Create a Logic Model ?
    • Communication Advantages of Logic Models
      • provide opportunity for stakeholders to discuss program and agree upon description.
      • logic models are also useful means of communicating elements of program to:
        • policy makers,
        • staff,
        • external funding agencies,
        • the media
        • colleagues.

    • Concentrate on how program is currently being implemented
    • Research available documentation and files:
      • budgets,
      • workplans,
      • strategic and operational plans,
      • Manuals & training materials,
      • organizational charts,
      • statements of goals and objectives,
      • previous evaluation reports,
      • committee reports,
  • Logic Model Tips 
    • Strive for simplicity and avoid over-inclusive approach
    • Don’t include all implementation details
    • Fit logic model on one page
    • Attach additional useful details about program
    • Discuss logic model with key stakeholders.
