We all want to know how well our programs worked, and might do so through evaluation at the mid- or end-point of our programs. However, how many of us ‘health check’ our programs early on to test how likely it is our program will work? Better to know this sooner rather than later!
Program logic is a tool commonly used in evaluation to help determine how well a program has worked. However, it is equally useful for an early ‘health check’. More program managers are now using program logic early, to help understand out what might limit, or even prevent, programs from achieving their expected outcomes.
Learning how to use program logic for this purpose will help you get clarity on how your project is expected to work, so you can make adjustments before implementation – rather than after the evaluation results come in. Using program logicIt will also ensure you are in a better position to:
a)Develop a good monitoring plan – to help you check in on project progress along the way; and/or
b)Understand what to look for, and who to speak to, when evaluating your project at its mid- or end-point.
Join us to learn more about program logic, and how it helps you do all this! This free webinar has been specially developed for SESA by Lee-Anne Molony (from Clear Horizon). Continue reading

achieving action outcomes and behaviour change
SESA has engaged Les Robinson to offer his successful Changeology program self-paced and online!
This tool set is perfect for project managers with real life change projects to develop.
Changeology Self-drive takes you through the process of designing a change project, step-by-step, down to the level of innovative tactics and persuasive messages. Les Robinsonwill be there every step of the way, providing you and your team with mentoring, illumination and guidance, by email, phone or Skype conferences.
You can use Self-drive:
- as a real-time project design system, where you develop a ready-to-launch project to tackle a real challenge; or
- as a training course, where you learn the skills and tools to design change projects that are tailored, innovative and buzzworthy.
You’ll get the same behavioural insights and proven rapid development tools as Les’s ‘in-the-flesh’ Changeology workshop.
The buddy rule: Because it’s always better to design with a buddy or team, the offer includes access for up to 4 members of the same project team. Continue reading
