Stage five: finalise and use your framework, and review annually

After completing stages one to four, revisit each part of your outcomes framework.

Finalise your framework

Check for consistency and make sure the four parts of the framework link together. Challenge whether you have robust evidence to support all the service, intermediate and overarching strategic outcomes and the benefits you identified in your logic model. Look at the examples on this website of what others have done to identify any gaps in your approach or your framework.

Bring together your final culture and sport outcomes framework consisting of one or more outcomes triangle, logic model, evidence list and set of PIs.

Develop and implement a plan for communicating your framework

Prepare and implement a communications plan for your framework. Think back to why you wanted to create your framework. Decide who you want to share it with internally within your own department and outside of it among officers and councillors or board members, and externally.

Think about what you need to share with them. Is it the whole framework or just parts of it? For example, councillors might find the overview given by the outcomes triangle helpful, whereas service commissioners might value the logic model showing the links between what you do, the benefits and the intermediate or overarching strategic outcomes.

If you are willing to share what you have done with others, send your outcomes framework to LGA for inclusion on this website.

Encourage others to develop an outcomes framework

Talk to your key culture and sport partners and encourage them to adopt the same or a similar outcomes framework.

Plan a review of your framework

Review your framework at least once a year to ensure it is still relevant and focused on the right priorities.
