Refine your logic model

Develop your logic model

We introduced a logic model in week 1 and you started developing your logic model in week 3. In this activity, we would now like you to use this approach in a project you are/might be involved in.

Once developed, this logic model, along with the elevator pitch can inform your final challenge for the course: to draft an executive summary of your project.

Reminder of the logic model

The key components of a logic model are:

  • Inputs (influences and resources)
  • Activities
  • Outputs
  • Outcomes (short, medium and long term)
  • Impact

Remember that you started working on a logic model with this workbook in week 3 – this may help with the activity below


  1. Use a logic model to map out how your project will lead to social change (it could be a project you are involved in, another existing project or an imagined or future project). How you do this is up to you. You could use a template and see examples for inspiration. The aim is to model how your sporting intervention will deliver its outcomes.
  2. If you wish to share your logic model, you can post it to a Padlet board. Click the image link below. Then by pressing on Padlet’s big plus button, you can upload pdfs and images, or link to a document shared elsewhere. You can also see examples your fellow learners have shared!

Alternatively, you may use the discussion board in this step to discuss/share your work. You may want to read other people’s plans and provide constructive feedback using the comments feature.

After reflecting on any feedback you receive in the Padlet board, you will be ready to draft an executive summary of your project clearly stating the problem it will address and how.
