conditions?
 How have participant aspirations or motivations
changed that impacts conditions? (i.e. intent to
change behavior)
 What are participants doing differently that impacts
conditions?
 How much has a condition changed due to our
program?
 Over time, how have communities changed due to
our programs (longitudinal)

Creating Public Value Statements –
The Public Value Story Template
The magic formula:
 Title – short public value
 Relevance – why (match with results)
 Response – what
 Results – so what (economy, social,
environment-cost/benefit,
longitudinal)
 Contact information - who
We Have Succeeded When:
People who are not directly
participating in our programs
understand and share our
public value and we prevent
further organizational
decline.
