Moving from your Logic Model to an Outcome Measurement Plan:
This class will address how to turn your logic model into an outcome measurement plan. Outcome Measurement is a process for demonstrating a nonprofit’s accountability and transparency that, in addition to affecting programs and services, can influence all major operations of the organization. In this time of increased competition for grants, it is more crucial than ever that nonprofits are able to clearly communicate their impact to their funders and stakeholders. More importantly, nonprofits owe it to themselves, and those they serve, to be able to analyze their programs and make improvements when necessary, so that their desired outcomes will be met.
In this workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of the value of outcome measurements specifically for program managers. They will become familiar with the outcome measurement process and learn how to implement an outcome measurement based approach to program evaluation. Prior experience with logic models is recommended.
The speaker, Martha Riecks, is an independent consultant with over a decade of experience in the nonprofit field. She specializes in providing services that allow small-to-medium nonprofits to clearly communicate the impact of their programs, secure grant funds and measure their successes. Ms. Riecks received a Master’s of Public Administration in Nonprofit Administration from the University of Pittsburgh and is a Registered Professional Fundraising Counsel with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Charitable Organizations, as well as a member of the American Evaluation Association.
