Describe your proposed project.

What is your vision of how it would look..

Assignment D: Need Assignment PLAN

Assignment E: Mission, Goals, Objectives

Assignment F: Logic Model

Assignment G: Marketing Plan

Assignment H: Budget

Assignment I: Personnel / Physical Environment

Assignment D – Needs Assessment Plan

How WOULD you determine if there is a need for the proposed program?

A needs assessment plan could include..

How you WOULD you gather community/demographic data

How you WOULD you conduct a problem analysis

How you WOULD you conduct a market analysis

(Calley, 2011):



I. Normative need -the standard

standards or norms of a community

current data to identify those standards

2. Perceived need

what people think or feel they need


3. Expressed need

if people are actually trying to receive services (i.e., if there is a demand for services)

4. Relative need

If there is a gap between available services in community/geographic area.

can be compared to a similar community/ geographic area.


Mission, Goals and Objectives: Assignment E


Use the following format, headings, and subheadings:


Mission Statement/Narrative.

Goals and Objectives.

Goal 1Objective 1.Objective 2.Objective 3.


Goal 2Objective 1.Objective 2.Objective 3.

Goal 3Objective 1.Objective 2.Objective 3.

Objectives should be quantifiable.

What’s the difference between objectives and activities?

Goal: Recruit and retain a diverse workforce to meet the needs of the organization.

Objectives Base-line 1st Year 3rd Year
1. Increase the percentage of open positions filled by a targeted deadline. 43% 55% 70%
2. Maintain the employee retention rate (less company-initiated transitions) above 75%. 42% 75% 75%
3. Increase the percentage of managers who indicate satisfaction with the hiring support provided, as measured by survey. N/A 80% 90%

Goal: Ensure our compensation and performance management processes are designed and executed to align and maximize our people’s performance with the goals of the organization.

Objectives Base-line 1st Year 3rd Year
1. Increase the percentage of employees for whom performance reviews have been completed and documented by the target date. 51% 60% 85%
2. Increase the percentage of employees who achieve at least 80% of their annual performance targets. 69% 72% 80%
What might the activities be?

Logic Model: Assignment F

The logic model need not have “bells and whistles,” need not be in color, have fancy symbols, or be interactive.

Benefits and Purpose

A way of telling the story of a program plan in terms of if-then.

Tells you where program is headed, what it needs to get there, and how one would know if it arrived.

Shows gaps in flow

Visually presents program components:

conception and logic of program design

intent, purpose, structure, activities, and outcomes

helps identify data that can/should be collected

The logic model..

Is used to build common understanding among diverse stakeholders, as well as educate and clarify the pieces, functions, purpose and consequences of each piece of program design.

Serves as a periodic reminder of the program components and purpose

So we don't lose sight of overall design and purpose.

It's easy to get lost in the daily minutia and busy-ness of program operations.

Is popular with funding sources because it forces you to clarify program plans/ design.

Three Basic Parts of Program Structure



Short, Intermediate and Long–Term Outcomes

Serves as a map to outcomes

Where are you going?

What are the outcomes? [Should be measureable!]

What are you trying to achieve?

How will you get there?

How will you know when you got there ?

How will you know if you achieved what you wanted?

How will you measure each outcome?

Sometimes we work backwards

Determine what outcomes we want and then consider how we will get there.

IF a program is well conceived…. THEN it should attain outcomes.

If resources and activities are in place and used efficiently and effectively, and if plan for their use is realistic and feasible, it should attain outcomes.

Are activities sufficient and well planned? Is there a research basis for the use of these activities to obtain sought-after results?

Resources = Inputs

I.e., human, financial and physical space resources including partners; in-kind such as volunteers, and contributions

Consider if resources are sufficient, well planned, and can be obtained and used as planned.

Activities = Action

Activities are:


# of sessions


Use of tools

Events/ actions

# of clients served, # participants

Use of technology

Outputs (optional)

Products, goods, services provided to direct customers/participants/clients

Products include promotional materials, curriculum guide, TX manual

Services include education, training, therapy, medication management, health screening


Short-term outcomes (teachers learn new skills)

Intermediate outcomes (change teaching approach and techniques)

Long-term outcomes (students do better on standardized tests, more go to college, more become good teachers)

Might Add Context

antecedent factors

Factors that you start out with (e.g., geographical factors, demographic factors)

mediating factors

Factors that emerge after program starts or after program plan is in place (e.g., crisis, staff change)



Textbooks might be written in future tense. You need to discuss your logic model in the present tense.
