Logic Models, Logical Framework Approach e Project Cycle Management (Logic Models, LFA and PCM)
This short analytical tool examines some well-known approaches applied when formulating projects and local development plans, id est Results-Based Management approach, Logical Framework Approach and Project Cycle Management.
The author adopts the position that policy-makers and experts do not always fully consider the different ratio of Logical Framework Approach (LFA) and Project Cycle Management (PCM) when they use these methods.
LFA is a planning tool, key to formulating plans based on a clear focus on “expected results” and the interlinks between these results and actions. PCM is a wider method, aimed at ensuring effectiveness and efficiency of the entire “project cycle”, by verifying results and quality of procedures at each phase.
