Theories of Change vs. Program Logic Models: Is there room for both?
Simply stated, Theories of Change and Program Logic Models represent methodologies for planning and evaluation…apologies to the TOC and PLM gurus for the oversimplification, but this serves as a jump-off point!
To expand on this a little, a theory of change provides the big picture of why change occurs at a strategic level while a logic model provides a program (implementation) level perspective of the change process… again, this is a bit of an oversimplification but more will be revealed and discussed at our next Guelph Evaluation Café!
Come hang out with us on November 23 as we unravel the basic components of theories of change and program logic models and the key features that set them apart. We’ll also explore how TOC and PLM complement each other using examples from real world applications.
As always, we want to stimulate discussion and whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or new to the evaluation field and just want to expand your knowledge we invite you to join the conversation.
