Resources to strengthen your project

A clear and planful connection from your resources to your desired outcomes strenghtens your project.  We suggest you use somethign like a Logic Model/Theory of Change to demonstrate your thinking: sample one, editable sample 2.  

Planfulness promises better outcomes for projects and keeps us more accoutable to ourselves and our partners.  You might consider using something like a Gannt chart:  Sample Gannt Chart

Please contact Susan Townsley if you'd like further instruction on how to use these resources.
