Target Action

STEP SEVEN: VISUALIZE

Logic models are a visual diagram of the community problem and why it is happening (or a goal and how it will be made to happen). The elements of the picture identified through the team’s analysis are informed by science, best practice, and community wisdom. This picture allows the partnership to clearly communicate their understanding with the broader community. The picture also assures that any selected interventions can be clearly aligned with their intended effects. Ideally, no group should begin taking action until it can show an evidence-based, issue-integrated picture of the community problem and why it is happening. Diagrams of outcomes, root causes and local conditions enable concise and clear communication, planning and evaluation. Such diagrams, or logic models, also allow a coalition to critically analyze its progress toward shorter term or intermediate goals which can facilitate needed improvement and celebration.

Completeness Checks:

 Model meets standards: a) Adequacy, b) Completeness, c) Line Logic, d) Communications

 Power Model elements have been paired with data/measures that have been selected based upon a) Data Power, b) Proxy Power and c) Communications Power (reference: Mark Friedman – RBA)

 Issue-integrated model that shows connections across related issues and leads to common causes for aligned action has been developed and agreed upon
