Variation: Line of sight model
A logic model is a map or simple illustration of what you and your organization do, why you do it, what you hope to achieve, and how you will measure achievement. Logic models illustrate how a project, program, or policy is understood or intended to produce particular results.
"Line of sight" refers to a worker or team member's ability to identify their work with the overall objectives of the organization--to "see" the organization's goal at the end of their work.
