ANZSOG Professor of Public Sector Evaluation, Patricia Rogers, has been using logic models for 30 years, and has applied program theory across projects, programs and policies in many different sectors in Australia, New Zealand and internationally.
“A good program theory that shows the complication of interventions helps you develop better performance modelling, better synthesis of evidence, and better communication of the public value that projects and policies create,” Professor Rogers says.
Program planners, managers and evaluators who want to extend their repertoire for developing, representing and using program theory will benefit from attending Advanced Program Logic.
You will discover how to select and apply the right conceptual framework to make sense of the challenges you face. You will apply the theory to your own practice examples, and come away with resources to strengthen your planning and evaluation skills.
Who should attend
Advanced Program Logic is pitched at program planners, managers and evaluators across the public sector.
In this one-day program, Professor Rogers will guide participants through real-world public sector case studies, plenary discussions, individual exercises and small-group discussions.
Before the workshop, you will be contacted to identify specific needs to tailor the content, and for examples from practice to include in discussions.
Advanced Program Logic workshop content will include:
- Examples of effective use of program logic
- Identifying challenges
- Developing program logic drawing on research-based theories
- Context for developing program logic and applying this to your own work
- Applying strategies for effective representation to your own work
- Developing indicators and measures, and applying this to your own work
- Strategies for implementing change to program logic.
