Logical Framework (LogFrame) analysis
Management by objectives (MBO) applied to program or project design, monitoring, and evaluation. This approach consists of four steps: (1) establishing objectives, (2) establishing cause-and-effect relationships (causal linkages) among activities, inputs, outputs, and objectives, (3) identifying assumptions underlying the causal linkages, and (4) identifying objectively-verifiable measures for evaluating progress and success. It gets its name from the 4 x 4 matrix (frame) employed in its mapping: the columns (which represent the levels of program or project objectives) are called vertical logic, and rows (which represent measures for assessing progress) are called horizontal logic. Also called logical framework method or project framework.
