Program Logic

A program logic is an articulation of how a program is intended to work, starting with the resources that go into the program (Inputs), followed by the activities the program undertakes (Outputs), and finally the changes or benefits that should result (Outcomes or Impacts).

Tony LaMontagne and Clare Shann were commissioned to create a logic map for MATES, which would represent the various elements and relationships of the MATES program, including its intended consequences. Program logic maps help create a shared understanding of a program, assist with the prioritisation of activities and allocation of resources, and ensure that short, mid and long term goals are kept in sight, as a program is implemented.
