Logframes and the Logical Framework Approach Course


The Logical Framework Approach (LFA) is a highly effective strategic planning and project management methodology with wide application. It comprises an integrated package of tools for analysing and solving planning problems and for designing and managing their solutions (the approach). The product of this analytical approach is the logframe (the matrix), which summarises what the project intends to do and how, what the key assumptions are, and how outputs and outcomes will be monitored and evaluated.
