The Logic Model Guidebook offers clear, step-by-step support for creating logic models and the modeling process in a range of contexts. Lisa Wyatt Knowlton and Cynthia C. Phillips describe the structures, processes, and language of logic models as a robust tool to improve the design, development, and implementation of program and organization change efforts. The text is enhanced by numerous visual learning guides (sample models, checklists, exercises, worksheets) and many new case examples. The authors provide students, practitioners, and beginning researchers with practical support to develop and improve models that reflect knowledge, practice, and beliefs. The Guidebook offers a range of new applied examples. The text includes logic models for evaluation, discusses archetypes, and explores display and meaning. In an important contribution to programs and organizations, it emphasizes quality by raising issues like plausibility, feasibility, and strategic choices in model creation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Logic models and learning Oct. 1 2012
By Salvatore Alaimo - Published on
I teach a graduate course in program evaluation at Grand Valley State University, and I cover the development and use of logic models with my students. This book is a valuable resource for how to use logic models for program development, delivery and evaluation. In my opinion, an ideal world or programs is one where everyone had a logic model and that model was developed at the conception of the program. While it is never too late to develop a logic model for a program, the ideal time is when the program is being developed. This book is user friendly with its palatable writing style that is a pleasure to read. It provides the reader with strategies, and the nuts and bolts for how logic models can serve as the basis for our learning about our programs. I highly recommend this book and I am fortunate to be in West Michigan where I invite these authors to guest lecture to my class. Logic models are no longer just requirements from funders, they are a critical basis for why we have programs and their intended impact. This book is a helpful guide not only for individuals but also for organizations desiring to change their paradigm for how they view logic models, and those seeking to maximize the benefit from developing and using them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Road Map to Effective Organization Performance Sept. 27 2012
By Dave Dempsey - Published on
This book is a marvel. It should be read by every nonprofit CEO and board member (and many others). It shows how logic models can usefully guide organizations from muddling to effectiveness. Lucid and jargon-free, the text is refreshingly understandable. It links theory and practice in ways that relate pragmatically to the nonprofit organizations I've served. New professionals will clearly benefit. Those professionals who have extensive experience will also gain by reading about the underpinnings of model development, which will stimulate their thinking and practice.

Great book, easy to read, and an asset to program planning.

Figures are blurry in the kindle edition, and difficult to read.

Need to have an audio version available.

I think this is the worst book I have ever read. It was required for a class, but even the teachers quit requiring it because of the poor read.
