A Conceptual Framework is a free form of diagrammatic results model. Internal and external factors, interim results, outputs and results are related in a diagram.
This kind of free model is very suitable for linking up conceptual considerations about complex networks of effects. They are however less suitable as a basis for outcome and impact assessment.
|Complexity becomes visible||Complex|
|Feedback becomes visible||Not a good basis for assessing impact and outcome|
|Well-suited to understanding a problem||–|
