ProjectDirekt is a unique project planning model – specially developed for cultural and social projects or activities – based on the LFA method, but developed into a custom model that can be tailored to the needs of different workstations.

ProjectDirekt can, after consultation, find out what suits your business best following services:


Plan the project or business either as a workshop or with managers directly depending on how involved the project group, stakeholders and target group should be in the design. The same method is used but participation becomes larger at the workshop. The project plan is built up with background / current situation description with stakeholder problem and goal analyzes as well as the design of the project with overall goals, project goals, sub-goals, and activities. mm.

Everything for the project or business to have as stable a foundation as possible. ProjectDirekt can help you to go through the activities that will be implemented, timed and budgeted in detail. Establish a financing plan and design applications as needed.


Follow-up – after the project or activity has started, it is good to follow up with a meeting or workshop to check that the project is on the right path, perhaps adjusting the sub-goals and activities. It is also an effective route if, for example, it is a multi-year project that is to be reported to the principals, steering group or financiers every year.

Evaluation – when the project is finished, it should be final reported. Then ProjektDirekt model fits in perfectly. Especially if the project is planned with the model and the target structure is in place. Then the project can be evaluated against criteria such as sustainability, efficiency.



If you want to do the planning yourself but need a training those in different parts of the process and how it is to be implemented, ProjectDirekt can tailor an education in the LFA method or ProjectDirekt’s model for your particular needs. The education can also include follow-up and evaluation criteria and how they are related to the target structure.


ProjectDirekt has extensive experience of working as a process leader and moderator for tailor-made workshops in all the above parts. For new partners or customers, the workshop for planning projects and activities is usually the first step. It is also the most effective way of achieving participation. Collaboration projects between different organizations will also benefit greatly and be aware of each other’s activities through a workshop to arrive at common denominators.



The heart of ProjektDirekt is to facilitate and moderate workshops based on the LFA method, but which are adapted to the needs of the recipient. In our process manager role, we take the project through the various steps that are necessary for an effective result. No more no less. The participants do not need any other prior knowledge other than the experiences they bring with them. We can totally do a little about the process that is being started and so far it has never failed. The result comes at the level of where the organization is mature for, with effective precision.

All workshops are specially adapted to your needs, based on the LFA method, but ProjectDirekt has developed its own worked variants with focus on the result. Particularly suitable for the cultural area and social projects and activities.

A workshop where the focus is on developing a structure with project goals, overall goals, sub-goals, and activities. In this case, there are already background facts and you know what you want to work with. A planning workshop can also be to produce a background / current situation analysis to assess the project’s sustainability and ability to implement.

Planning workshops are also an excellent tool for collaborative projects between different organizations, locally, nationally or internationally, where common points of departure, goals, and activities are to be realized.

A workshop that goes deeper with stakeholders/target group, problems/current situation analysis, goal analysis, and project design – divided into two occasions. The first occasion is a background / current situation analysis and the second occasion the project is designed based on facts from the analysis. The workshop that will be most effective in getting an overall picture of the current situation and design of the project or business. It is also the most effective in collaborative projects where activities are to be planned and common structures to be built. To recommend in most cases.

A workshop that analyzes basically – where planning workshop with an in-depth study is included, as well as further analyzes such as assumptions about the behavior of the outside world, risk analysis, measurement methods, etc. Simply a regular LFA workshop according to all the rules of art.

Follow-up after the project has been running for some time. Are we on the right track? Do sub-goals and activities need to be adjusted? Should partial reporting be submitted to the steering group or contributor? Then there is a follow-up on site.

It can also be a final report of the project where the result is analyzed and followed up against set goals according to a special method where efficiency, sustainability, etc. are measured.

Tools that can be included in Workshop depending on the layout: LFA method (whole or parts), Risk analysis, SWOT analysis, Kanban, Gannt-schema, etc. can be used when needed, but usually it is enough to use ProjektDirekt’s simple, fast and efficient basic set-up.



LFA (Logical Framework Approach) is a goal-oriented method for efficient planning of projects, which can also be used in business planning. It has become popular because it simply gives clarity and structure in the planning. LFA helps to structure the thoughts for everyone who has their own project idea.
LFA is a good tool for finding a logical connection between goals, results and activities. A tool that, in addition to planning, is used for analysis, assessment, follow-up and evaluation of projects.
The LFA method is a result-oriented tool and it is increasingly required when applying for grants from larger organizations. The Swedish ESF Council and several other large organizations recommend LFA as an aid for applying for support. Planning and applications to the EU, Sida, Save the Children are some other examples.
Planning is a process in different stages. In LFA, one starts by making a problem / situation analysis, then sets goals at different levels and only after that are you ready to develop suitable activities. This means that the activities are clearly anchored in a context and backed up by measurable goals.
In various types of cultural and social projects, the dialogue-creating process that LFA entails and the ease of getting an overview of the project’s entire flow is appreciated. When you understand the methodology it is also easy to use the different parts separately. Simply a powerful tool.
LFA is a technique to ensure that you reach where they want their project. LFA is often chosen as a method when it, correctly used, leads to viable and sustainable projects – simply results. LFA can be used in all types of sectors and all types of projects, programs and for business planning.
