Now that Darcy has established her goal and written her narrative, she turns her focus to developing other components of the logic model:
OBJECTIVES: Expected achievements that are well defined, specific, measurable, and derived from the goal.
ACTIVITIES: The steps or tasks undertaken to meet the objectives of the program.
Darcy should also keep in mind the resources that are available to operate the program and to accomplish the program’s goals and objectives. Below are some examples of resources:
- Building to house a program
- Staff to manage and direct the program activities
- Computers and staff to collect data and conduct analyses
- Funding to support program objectives
There may be external factors such as the availability of afterschool activities that affect Darcy’s program. If they seem significant, she might want to include these external factors in her logic model.
