  1. Using logic models and theories of change better in evaluation

    Blog
    19th May, 2017

    Many evaluations include a process of developing logic models and theories of change – an explanation of how the activities of a program, project, policy, network or event are expected to contribute to particular results in the short-term and longer-term.  They have been used for many years -  versions can be seen in Carol Weiss’ 1972 book "Evaluation research: methods for assessing program effectiveness" -  and they have been mainstreamed in many organisations

    Event
    Workshop
    29th March, 2017 to 30th March, 2017
    Australia
    Paid

    This workshop style training course introduces the program logic / theory of change concept and a step by step process for creating a logic model for programs of all types and levels of complexity. A program logic/ theory of change focuses not just on how a project is trying to achieve change, and what kinds of change, but also on who needs to change. The course includes discussion of how program logic / theory of change can be used for program design and to provide the structure for monitoring and evaluation plans.

    This workshop style training course introduces the program logic / theory of change concept and lays out a step by step process for creating a logic model for complex, multi-stakeholder programs. A program logic/ theory of change focuses not just on what, and how a project is trying to achieve change but also on the who will be changing. The course includes discussion of how program logic / theory of change can be used for program design and how it can be used to provide the structure for monitoring and evaluation plans.

  8. Theory of Change for Planning and Impact Assessment

    Interest in developing and using Theories of Change both for planning and assessing impact has grown rapidly over the last few years. Theories of Change can be set at different levels and are being used in a number of ways. At one end of the scale, they are pulled together by one person to support a programme proposal or a specific donor demand. At the other end, they are facilitated over a period of several months and include wide consultation with staff, partners and beneficiaries, and are used to inform strategy at all levels. As Theories of Change focus specifically on sequences of change for different target groups, they provide a clear and robust framework for monitoring and assessing the impact of our development efforts.
