Guide and Best Practices

A logic model is a diagram that visually represents the logical relationships among the resources, activities, outputs, audiences, and outcomes of a program. It outlines the sequence of cause-and-effect relationships between the different elements in a program in order to explain the thinking behind its design and how it produces the desired results. It’s often used by program managers and evaluators to explain the effectiveness of their programs.

How to Create a Logic Model

  • Creating a logic model starts with assembling a dynamic group of members who have a clear understanding of the goals, assets, and commitments of the program.
  • Identify and define the problem that is being addressed by the program. This helps everyone involved get on the same page.
  • Key resources or program inputs are determined next. These often include human resources, office supplies, field resources, investments, contributions, etc. You can list things that are required as well as resources that would be helpful but not critical to the success of the program. For clarity place them under two categories on the logic model template you create.
  • Identify the key outputs which may include the actions the team members will have to take, services or products created, etc. in order to achieve the program objectives.
  • Determine program outcomes or the desired goals that the program needs ultimately to achieve. You can categorize these outcomes as short-term, mid-term, or long-term in order to recognize progress over time.
  • Create a logic model outline focusing on the inputs, outputs, and outcomes you have identified. You can select a Creately logic model template that suits your needs and add everyone as collaborators with edit access. This enables everyone to access and collaborate on the canvas in real-time wherever they are.
  • Then proceed on to identifying the external factors that may hinder or reinforce the progress of your program. Such factors may include obstacles in the environment or the setting the program will take place in and other programs that you can collaborate with.
  • Identify program’ indicators that will help with reporting the program’s results. Set process indicators for each of the program’s items and outcome indicators for the goals set.
