What is the logic model template?

You’ve no doubt seen a Rube Goldberg machine before—they’re the complex machines in which one item’s action triggers another item’s action. For instance, a line of dominos hits a ping pong paddle that spins around, activates a gumball machine, and so on until the final objective is achieved. Each item in the Rube Goldberg machine has a relationship to another item and a relationship to the final outcome.

This is similar to a logic model, which is a graphic illustration of the relationship between a program’s resources, its activities, and its effects. A logic model is a valuable tool used in program planning, evaluation, and management to clarify and communicate how a program is expected to work, what it aims to achieve, and how it will measure its success.

And we have a free template that will ease the pain points of creating your own logic model (no ping pong paddle required).

Benefits of using the logic model template

There are several ways this template can benefit you and your team.

  • Visualize potential inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes, seeing how each item in your model affects a process.
  • Collaborate with your colleagues to continually evaluate, revise, and learn from your logic model to achieve better results.
  • Customize to your use case, regardless of industry.
  • Write out the relationship of different elements and their outcomes so you can better understand how each system part is related.
