The Logic Model Repair Shop: Why Most Logic Models are Broken and How We Can Fix Them

Three smart people talk about logic models. Logic models are broken. We talk about how to fix them. But the fixes are broken as well. Crazy new idea introduced. Magic happens. The audience is astonished because their conceptual reality of logic models is challenged. There are hushed whispers, doubting nods, and joyful exclamations of ‘YES!’ all at the same time.
