The work you do is too important to navigate without a map! Become an impact-driven organization by creating a map of where you are going and how you will get there. Logic Models are an excellent tool to help your team get clear on how you will achieve long-term impact. This slide deck will provide you with a basic overview of logic models and a how-to guide for creating a logic model or impact map with your team. Originally presented at the Youth Intervention Progarms Association's 2014 Conference. From www.brandiolsoncsonulting.com

MAPPING YOUR
IMPACT
Brandi Olson Consulting
Authentic impact doesn’t happen just
because you have good intentions. You
have to know where you are going to get
there—and not get lost along the way.

Editor's Notes

  1. I am Brandi Olson, and I empower organizations to measure, adjust, and grow their impact using good data. I help organizations make sense of data, so they can use it in tandem with their instincts and knowledge to make better decisions along the way, when they can make the most difference. The good you do is too important to navigate without a map—which is why I believe logic models are an essential tool for an impact driven organization.
  2. Looking to make your logic model more practical and useful.
  3. You got in too deep and can’t figure out to get out.
  4. It’s too big to be useful
  5. Your skeptical. Someone else is demanding you create a logic model, but you doubt that it will have any value.
  6. Wherever you are starting, this session aims to help you find a roadmap out of the chaos and into a clear path forward.
  7. There is no magic way to create a logic model. So, I want you to get up, get to know a few people and invent your own logic model in the process. Groups of 3-5, grab a lingo deck. 10 minutes Have each group share briefly. What do you notice about the different models?
  8. Logic Models are a picture of how and why your program works. There is no right way to do it. They can be linear, circular, or any other shape. They all show movement
  9. An impact map is your program visualized, and it tells a story: beginning, middle, and end. It tells the story of how your participants and stakeholders are learning, changing, and transforming along the way to your destination.
  10. TBL aims to diversify the marketing industry by creating opportunities and access for youth from diverse backgrounds. This is a big picture overview map of how they do it.
  11. Focus on context, addresses the impact to a group of stakeholders—marketing professionals—investors and volunteers. Talk about context, resources, and numbers
  12. The same process, but in a different format. What do you notice about the two models? Who is being impacted? What types of impact are occurring?
  13. Focuses on how a single program component—restorative justice conferences can lead to transformed communities by impacting everyone involved from volunteers, to police to youth and victims. Talk about immediate and far-reaching impacts. And now, this organization knows what to measure…they can leverage their time and energy by measuring only the most important things. Measurement is the compass.
  14. I am a teacher at heart, and I really care that you get this, so I am going to share a process for how to map out your own impact.
  15. You can’t do this well sitting at a desk by yourself in a cubicle. You need to assemble the troops for a lively conversation! A more beautiful question. Here are some questions to guide your process.
  16. Let’s make an impact map together. Our organization is the Minnesota Twins, and our core action is building Target Field. Let’s map out the impact they hope to have achieved from building the new stadium. Perhaps we will discover something useful the Vikings could learn from. Write out the answers to questions on big post-its.
  17. This is your organizations mission, vision, reason for existence. How are you changing the world?
  18. What is the end goal? Whose goal is it? What is at stake?
  19. This is where you fully develop your program theory—why does what you do work? What evidence is there to support your program action? What is the logical link between your program and impact? Has it worked in the past? Why are you engaging in this specific type of activity and not something else?
  20. You can start at the beginning—with your core actions, and ask, BUT WHY? Keep asking that question until you reach your end goal. Or, you can start at the end. How do you think you are changing the world? BUT HOW? Keep asking that until you reach concrete actions your organization is involved in. Pay attention to the leaps in logic—these points along the way might need to be reconsidered. Is it really the best path? Think about the assumptions that go into your program theory. Be aware of your assumptions and consider if they are valid.
  21. Put it on paper. I like to do this step with note cards on a table or a sticky wall. Put a single idea on each piece of paper. Lay it out in a visual way, and then move it around until the sequence/trail makes sense.
  22. This is what separates a functional map from an outdated logic model. One of the challenges that exist when hiking in the upper peninsula is that some of the maps are over 80 years old!
