Shows the casual or logical relationships that exists between inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes of a given programme, project or policy. Also referred to as a performance chain, a results chain is similar to a flow chart but need not match specific activities with specific outputs or results. Because it does not show the same detail as a flow chart with respect to the casual sequence of activities, outputs and results , the user should ensure that "simplistic" does not displace "standard". As with other visual depictions, the influence of external factors is explicitly considered. Inputs, activities, and outputs are often a measure of efficiency; the results are used then used to determine programme effectiveness. (in process).[1][2]
