The Change Map and the Bottom-Up Logic Model

Webinar Prices

globe and mapThis workshop, presented by Maryn Boess, Founder of GrantsMagic U, offers a powerful way of thinking about and assessing the work your organization does-—and a simple, step-by-step process for communicating the impact of your work to funders, partners, and the community at large.

The Change Map and Bottom-Up Logic Model are two powerful, practical tools that help community agencies organize resources toward change and diagnose misalignments between action and impact. Using these tools together, you can create a visual framework for meaningful, measurable collective impact in a challenging and changing environment—and organize your resources to achieve it.

In this engaging, interactive session Maryn will:

  • introduce a very big-picture context called The Change Map—bigger than the Logic Model, even bigger than your mission!—for articulating exactly what your organization does and why it matters;
  • explain why the Logic Model is the indispensable do-it-all power tool for planning, managing, and evaluating all your community work—grant proposal or no grant proposal; and,
  • demonstrate how to use your X-ray vision to expose the essential “bones” of the Logic Model structure and exactly how all the pieces fit together. (PLUS you’ll get hands-on practice constructing a Logic Model right on the spot.)

You’ll see how flipping the Logic Model on its side to create “The Bottom-Up Logic Model” turns it into a powerful lens for spotting, diagnosing, and fixing problems in your program plans and change initiatives.

BONUS: Collaboration Logic Model—You’ll learn how the Bottom-Up Logic Model can be used to map out the work of your community teams and partnerships to make sure you maximize your collective impact.
