It appears that still quite some confusion exists about the LFA. Therefore I post this clarification here.
The LFA method (Logical Framework Analysis) is the fundamental tool of Project Cycle Management (PCM) and Results-Based Management (RBM).
LFA is step-by-step procedure applying specific techniques in a participatory workshop setting for gathering a thorough picture of a problematic situation as perceived from different perspectives (stakeholders). We call that picture the ‘ANCHOR’ of the project, which will reflect the RELEVANCE of a possible intervention addressing those problems.
