A Theory of Change is a powerful tool that organizations can use to ensure that their day-to-day activities are aligned with their ultimate aims.

More than a logic model, a Theory of Change is an organization’s “theory”, or story, of how it will make change in the world. A theory explains the group’s beliefs about how change will unfold. It is usually represented visually as an "outcomes chain" and is supported by a narrative - including underlying assumptions and indicators.
