Outcome Mapping

Outcome mapping is a methodology for planning and evaluating programs that aim to bring about social change. It is a participatory process than enables a program to be specific about who it is targeting, the changes it expects to see and the strategies it employs to bring about these changes. Outcome mapping involves determining the desired changes (the outcomes) then set a series of ‘progress markers’ or statements that describe the progression of changes required to meet the overall outcome. The methodology is comprised of several tools, which can be modified to fit different contexts.
