February 12 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Faculty: Britt Hogue, Principal, The Collective Good
Course Objective: This course will explain how logic models are used to elaborate theories of change and will introduce participants to a framework that will allow them to draft their own model, refining how their organization communicates its mission and providing clarity into how its programs and resources are managed to yield desired outcomes and impact.
Articulating the value and effectiveness of programs can be both difficult and daunting. Yet an increasing number of funders want to know exactly what outcomes nonprofits expect to achieve and how that impact is being tracked. Performance measurement is also a critical part program management, as progress and quality indicators reveal opportunities for growth and improvement. However, before organizations can define a set of meaningful metrics, leaders must ask two key questions: What does success look like? and How do we achieve results?
This course will introduce a structure for answering these questions. Learning how to elaborate your theory of change in a detailed logic model will bring clarity to how your organization communicates and manages its mission, programs, and resources to yield desired outcomes.
