Logic models are an important planning and evaluation tool in health and human services programs in the public and nonprofit sectors. This Research and Practice Note provides the key content, step-by-step facilitation tips, and case study exercises for a half-day logic model workshop for managers, staff, and volunteers. Included are definitions, explanations, and examples of the logic model and its elements, and an articulation of the benefits of the logic model for various planning and evaluation purposes for different audiences. The aim of the Research and Practice Note is to provide a starting point for evaluators developing their own workshops to teach program teams about logic models. This approach has been evaluated with hundreds of participants in dozens of workshops.
