Logic Models and the Theory of Change, Part 2


Logic Models and the Theory of Change, Part 2

November 28, 2023



During this 90-minute skill-building session, participants will receive a recap from part one of the series and then dive into the importance of clearly understanding how the logic model is dependent on a clear and articulate theory of change. Using real-world examples from the Pacific Southwest PTTC region, participants will learn to determine if a logic model effectively incorporates a theory of change into its design. Then, during breakout sessions, the participants will be able to use their own program’s logic model or utilize an example provided, to develop their own 90-second “elevator speech” related to the theory of change.   


By the end of this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Explore where the theory of change is embedded into a logic model.
  • Compare different logic model's use of a theory of change.
  • Articulate a theory of change.
