Unlocking the Power of Logic Models



Build or refine your own logic model, challenge your theory, prevent scope creep, and guide your evaluation.

Join Wilder Research to dig into the fundamentals of logic models and their role in program evaluation. A logic model is a visual depiction of your organization’s or program’s activities and expected outcomes. Logic models can help guide program planning and evaluation and communicate impact to funders and other key audiences.

Through a combination of presentation and interactive activities, you'll:

  • Learn the components of a logic model and discover their power as a base for evaluation, to prevent scope creep, and to maintain focus on desired results.
  • Learn to build evidence-based models or test theories effectively, ensuring your programs are grounded in solid strategy.
  • Craft or refine your own logic model. Bring your existing model or brainstorm ideas to develop one during the session.

Whether you're a novice or a pro, you’ll leave with new ideas and tips for making the most of this foundational evaluation tool.

If your organization or program has a logic model, please bring it to the workshop.

Cost: $100

About the workshop series

Evaluation is one way for your organization to reflect on your work, make changes to better achieve the outcomes you want, and communicate the impact of your work to funders and other stakeholders.

Wilder Research evaluation workshops help build or polish your evaluation skills and equip you with the tools and resources to do evaluation at your organization.

Who should attend?

These trainings are for nonprofit, foundation, and government staff and volunteers who are interested in building a foundational set of skills in program evaluation. Whether you already use some evaluation tools in your work or have no experience with evaluation, we’ll showcase practical approaches for incorporating evaluation into your work.
