The second day will guide in developing a Theory of Change (TOC) for your programs and services by connecting these user-centred stories client outcomes  to existing evidence and research. This way, your TOC will provide you with a tailored framework to build to outcomes measurement and evidence that fits into the culture of your agency .This tailored framework will be also be a useful reflective, planning tool and assist in practical aspects of your organisations operation including strategic planning, job descriptions and workplans.
