Logical Framework

Object: 30
Date of origin: 1969
Author/inventor/context: Leon J. Rosenberg for the United States Agency for International Development
This is a management tool originally used in the design, monitoring and evaluation of international development projects. It now pervades as a system of planning and control across the NGO sector. Simply represented within a matrix made up of programme specifics coupled with indicators of success. It treats events as static and closed systems, framing the analysis through a linear structure of cause and effect. It is best used in conjunction with financial systems where all input can be accounted for. Logical Framework impacts on the capacity to understand social change by claiming that the future corresponds to that which was planned.
