Consequences are changes, gains, knowledge or other effects that result from the services and activities provided by an organization. Results can be positive or negative, expected or unexpected. The results can be relevant to individuals, families, entire communities, organizations, or other fields such as politics, law, or nature. Outcomes are linked to specific goals/objectives. Outcomes are all changes that can actually occur in activities to achieve specific objectives. These may not always match the expected results. Exhaust can be a direct and/or indirect result of exhaust. Since small changes must often be made to achieve the desired main result, intermediate steps must be identified to achieve the final result. These steps are called intermediate or intermediate results.
There are basically two types of outcomes:
- Soft Outcomes.
- Hard Outcomes.
