What is the difference between the Theory of Change and the Logical Framework? Are they the same or different?

Hi, Both are different. 

There is often confusion between the Theory of Change and the Logical framework (log frame). The two concepts are closely related but still different. ToC gives the ‘big picture’ in the sense that it brings into focus the complex processes (social, economic, institutional underlying the desired change.

Logical Framework, on the other hand, dwells on the activities leading to outputs, outcomes, and the Goal. A Logical Framework is usually developed after a ToC is developed. From the standpoint of ToC, indicators of change are not the same as performance indicators in a traditional logical framework. Indicators of change relate to the conditions identified in ToC.
