II-a Theory of Change

A logic model is a diagram showing what a program or initiative is supposed to do, with whom, and why. Logic models should depict the theory of a program and show its underlying cause- and-effect assumptions. IPDET’s Core Course introduces logic models, giving participants an initial opportunity to use this tool during their small group work. This workshop offers an opportunity to explore this model in more detail. It builds on the IPDET Core Course’s basic logic model approach and offers innovative alternative strategies for depicting the complexity involved in many of today’s development initiatives. The use of results logic in planning and measurement – as well as evaluation – will also be explored. Participants will work on a series of individual and small group exercises, have ample time to ask questions, consider plenty of practical examples, and be encouraged to share their own experiences.
