Download your GPC CEU certificate of completion here!

You can download the webinar slides here and the change map workbook here.

The Change Map and Logic Model are two powerful, practical tools that help you organize resources toward change – and diagnose misalignments between action and impact. Using these tools together, we can create a visual framework for our collective impact as well as organize your resources to achieve and measure it. In this session you will:

  • Learn how to use The Change Map for articulating exactly what your organization does and why it matters.
  • Utilize the Logic Model as an indispensable, powerful tool for planning, managing and evaluating your community work.
  • Create a “Bottom-Up Logic Model” for a powerful lens to spot, diagnose, and fix problems in your program plans and initiatives.
  • Use a Collaboration Logic Model to map & maximize the work and impact of community teams and partnerships.
