A methodology for outcomes measurement.
One of the most commonly used outcomes methodologies is Program Logic (also known as logic map, outcomes logic, logic model or outcomes map). Program Logic is designed by a service or program to set out what activities will be delivered, how, and what outcomes are expected to occur.
Typically, Program Logic consists of a graphical depiction of inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes. Outcomes can be split into short, medium and long-term outcomes.
Program Logic is built on the concept of cause and effect: program activities with the right inputs will result in short-term outcomes which, in turn, ultimately lead to medium and long-term outcomes.
