The Logical Framework Approach--Millennium
The Logical Framework Approach (LFA) has proved to be a valuable tool for project approval, design, and evaluation. However, a few pitfalls make it hard to use within today’s project management framework and to integrate with other project management tools. This article proposes an updated version of the LFA to improve its compatibility with today’s corporate culture, project management framework, and tools. We propose to call the updated tool the Logical Framework Approach–Millennium (LFA–M). The LFA–M is a seven-step approach leading to the development of the Logframe–Millennium (LF–M), a fivecolumn and four-line matrix describing major project commitments and providing an overall understanding of the project. It was successfully implemented at the Canadian Space Agency and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.
