Before a community can start developing innovative new ways of delivering local services, they demonstrate that their proposals are based on a clear analysis. This includes showing what is wrong at present, how this can be changed, and how the effectiveness of their proposals will be monitored once they have been implemented.

What is a logic model?

Fundamentally a logic model is about:

1. Showing what is wrong

2. Explaining the steps that will be taken to correct this

3. Describing the outcome if these steps are successful.

Logic models are used by public agencies, private companies and 3rd sector organisations as part of business planning and delivery, acting as a systematic and visual way of demonstrating the thinking that underpins a programme and policy.

This resource was originally used as part of a previously funding programme, but the resource can still be used by others looking to develop a logic model.
