Logical Framework Analysis (Logframe)

There are four documents on this site directly related to logical framework analysis (logframe). Each can be accessed below. Also, there are two previous posts that provide guidance for writing statements for monitoring elements in a logframe; links are provided.

“Basic Elements of the Logical Framework Matrix”:  LINK  logframe basic elements This document describes the composition of the typical 4×4 matrix that is a summary of the logical hierarchy that connects the project goal, purpose, outputs and activities.

“Worldview Assumptions for Logframes” LINK logframe assumptions  This document identifies basic “worldview” assumptions that underlie the logical framework approach to project design. Cautions are raised for TE practitioners that fail to analyze the transformation implications of these assumptions.

“Logframe from a Project Monitoring Perspective”:  LINK  logframe project monitoring  This document highlights transformation aspects of the monitoring elements of a logframe.

“Understanding work standards, project objectives and indicator results”:  This post describes basic similarities and differences between statements that function as standards, objectives and indicators. LINK

 “Principles for reviewing a project monitoring system”:  This post includes suggestions for rigorously stating standards, objectives and indicators. It is helpful in preparing the contents of a logframe matrix, and in reviewing an existing logframe. LINK

 “Using Logical Framework to Plan an Evaluation”:  LINK logframe for an evaluation  This document shows an example of a logframe for an evaluation exercise, where the evaluation exercise is viewed as a project.

As always your comments are welcome.

From Conclusions to Provocative Propositions

Evaluation conclusions and recommendations often do not inspire imaginative thinking about the future.  A provocative proposition describes what the organization would look like if it were designed to maximize the best practices, the peak experiences, in a sustainable way. I have prepared a hypothetical case study to illustrate how formulating provocative propositions can be included in an evaluation exercise. The process can encourage organizational transformation that can be used by God for social transformation. Click LINK Provocative Propositions
