Using a Generic Outcomes Model to Implement Similar Programs in a Number of Countries, Districts, Organizational or Sector Units (article)

This article steps you through the whole process of how you can use an outcomes model to map different projects which have shared outcomes. In addition it talks about how this approach can be used for working out gaps and overlaps and priorities. It includes further videos on using the approach.

13 Tips For Building Great Outcomes Models (Intervention logics)  (1 page tip sheet)

For outcomes models to be used for mapping multiple projects, they need to be built in a specific way. This 'tip sheet' sets out the rules for drawing outcomes models (program logics). Use this tip sheet yourself, or hand it out when working with a group so that everyone is clear about the rules you are using to build your model. If anyone wants to know where the 13 rules come from, refer them to the article on which it is based - a set of formal standards for building outcomes models (program logics).  

What Outcomes and Results Modeling can Do for Your Organization (1 page tip sheet)

A one page 'tip sheet' which describes the ways in which a well constructed program logic (outcomes model), once developed, can be used for strategic planning, prioritization, evidence-based practice, working out different or activities are believed to contribute to joint outcomes, getting staff outcomes focused, performance measurement and tracking progress, evaluation planning and outcomes-focused contracting. Hand this tip sheet out to the group with which you are wanting to map multiple projects so that they can see how they can leverage the work they are doing building a well-constructed outcomes model for other purposes (e.g. monitoring, evaluation, outcomes-focused contracting). This approach is set out in more detail in the article here.

Pre-existing program outcomes models you can 'borrow' to get going (OutcomesModels.org) (website)

A set of outcomes models (program logics) which have already been developed for a number of programs in a number of areas. You can click through them in their web page versions and if if like any of them and if they are relevant to you, you can immediately print them off as PDFs. If you have DoView outcomes software installed, you can immediately download the DoView file of the model and start amending it to reflect what is happening in your program.. 

Easy Outcomes Workbook (detailed 'hands-on' workbook)

A full workbook showing you the process for facilitating a group when drawing a program logic model (outcomes model) (e.g. what size the group should be etc.). It then leads you through all of the stages in developing and using such a model for strategic planning, prioritization, monitoring and performance management, evaluation, evidence-based practice and outcomes-focused contracting and delegation.  The whole Easy Outcomes system of which this workbook is part is set out at EasyOutcomes.org.
