Visual Models and Outcomes

The post by Paul Duigan, Paul Duigan on DoView and Visually Representing Outcomes, at the AEA365 Tip-a-Day by and for Evaluators Blog is meaty fare for nonprofit professionals looking for a new approach to the coordination and presentation of organizational activities. Dr Duigan’s method includes a series of visual depictions of the interrelated workings of organizational processes such as evaluation, strategic planning and ongoing monitoring in one large (and involved) model. Utilizing visual models, rather than the traditional narrative form of most planning and evaluation tools, may increase the efficiency of the process and its appeal to a wider audience.
Additional information on Paul Duigan’s work is available on his website, OutcomesCentral.org, which is a treasure trove of resources and multi-media presentations on outcomes, performance management, strategic planning and modeling.
