Designing Useful Outcome Measures

Meaningful outcomes can tell the story of your program's impact. Figuring out what and how to measure can be challenging.  In this training you will develop a better understanding of how to demonstrate the impact of your program.  Thinking about program outcomes can lead to meaningful conversations and help enhance and support a learning environment in your organization.

Theory of Change includes the reasons why you choose particular strategies to achieve the results you want; it includes research and assumptions related to your clients and how to address their needs.  If you can articulate your program's theory of change, then you can develop a way to define your program goals and measureable outcomes.  Examining your theory of change will enable you to take a critical look at your program strategies and what kind of results you can expect from those strategies.  The session will be valuable for program planning, grant writing and evaluation.

Learning Objectives
- Describe the concept of Theory of Change
- Describe your program and develop your program's theory of change using structured group process
- Identify indicators of successful outcomes


Program Directors, grant writers and Executive Directors who want to demonstrate outcomes in meaningful ways to their constituents.  Ideally, bring a staff team to the training.
