Short-term, medium-term, and long-term outcomes
The purpose statement in Module B (Do what? For whom? For what outcomes?) may lend itself to stating big, long-term goals that are hard to measure. The strongest logic models focus on achievable, measurable short-term outcomes. If you have long-term goals, be clear about how the particular program leads to those outcomes.
Let’s look at a simple example:
Teaching Girl Scouts about local birds involves library books, museum visits, and field trips with the long-term goal of interesting them in their local environment.
