Logic models are a critical tool for program planning, implementation, and dissemination. Logic models are not only created for grant applications but are often developed internally within organizations when beginning to start a new program. However, logic models are often tricky for new grant professionals to understand, and the various logic model formats used by grant makers are tricky for both new and experienced grant professionals to work with.
So we’ve decided to try and make the creation of and utilization of logic models *less* painful for the #grantchat community whether a new or experienced grant professional. Here are our ten questions that we hope will do just that:
Q1: What is your biggest question or concern related to logic models? #grantchat
Q2: How do you approach logic models differently than work plans? #grantchat
Q3: How do you approach applications that require logic models differently than those that don’t? #grantchat
Q4: How do you help clients/colleagues/collaborators understand the different terms in a logic model (inputs, outputs, etc.)? #grantchat
Q5: How do you prefer to start drafting a logic model? What is your preferred approach or tool? #grantchat
Q6: Do you find it helpful in preplanning applications to create logic models whether required or not? Why/why not? #grantchat
Q7: How do you involve the rest of the organization’s grant team in development of logic models? #grantchat
Q8: What would make a logic model easier for you to develop/work on within an application? #grantchat
Q9: What resources do you rely on or refer to related to logic models? #grantchat
Q10: What other tips and tricks do you want to share about logic models? #grantchat
We are looking forward to having you join us on September 21, 2015 at 12 pm ET for ‘Taking the Pain out of Logic Models’ on @Grant_Chat, sponsored by Smartegrants @smartegrants and co-moderated by Jo Miller@JM_grants, Diane H. Leonard @DianeHLeonard and Michelle Loftis @mlloftis.
