  3. Identify potential unintended results


    Many evaluations and logic models only focus on intended outcomes and impacts - but positive or negative unintended results can be important too.

    Use these options before a program is implemented to identify possible unintended outcomes and impacts, especially negative impacts (that make things worse not better) that should also be investigated and tracked.

    Make sure your data collection remains open to unintended results that you have not anticipated by including some open-ended questions in interviews and questionnaires, and by encouraging reporting of unexpected results.
