Welcome to DoView 2.0 a new visual approach to identifying your personal, project, or organizational results and outcomes, showing the steps you are going to take to reach them, and working out how you are going to measure whether or not you're on track to get the results you want.


DoView: Think. View. Plan. Share. See. Evaluate. Monitor.


DoView is a new innovative stand-alone piece of software which will radically simplify your work with outcomes (think of it as the world's first 'outcomes processor'). We all have to be accountable for results and outcomes these days and DoView lets you quickly produce visual models of the outcomes you are trying to achieve and the steps you are using to get to them. Such visual models go by many names such as: outcomes models, results models, strategy maps, logic models, intervention logics, theories of change, program theories and ends-means diagrams. DoView has been designed to help you build them fast and share them with others. It is used for talking about outcomes in strategic planning, program evaluation, monitoring, and outcomes-focused contracting.

DoView makes working with outcomes a breeze. All the tools you need are at your fingertips in a single simple intuitive environment, and the program handles all the technical aspects of the process for you. Instead of wasting countless hours trying to draw and format your outcomes and the links between them, you can focus all your energy on the content of your planning, so that all your working time is productive time.

DoView's power and user-friendliness brings a new dimension to your work. We created DoView to meet the day-to-day challenges and frustrations faced by those who need to not only plan, but regularly communicate, amend and share a visual plan of the outcomes they are seeking with real people. People who want to quickly understand what you are trying to do and how you are planning to do it.  We know of no other outcomes modeling, logic modeling and visual planning tool available that just the features you need in such an affordable user-friendly package.

Intuitive working environment

DoView's working environment gives you what you need to quickly build a visual outcomes model without the complexity and confusing redundant features of full-on drawing programs. This is combined with powerful time-saving features for editing plans that are so easy to use. It has also been optimized to help you build plans in real-time in front of stakeholder meetings.

Generate HTML, PDF and poster versions

Once you've build your model, DoView lets you quickly generate web page models and PDFs of your model. The PDFs can range  normal sized paper versions up to poster-sized versions.

The web page model output includes a full menu structure that emulates the appearance and functionality of DoView and can include a downloadable DoView or PDF file. The ability to download the DoView file which created the web page version means that you have a way of rapidly spreading your models to others who may want to use them.

Images and whole pages of your DoView files can be added to your email, word processing or other files with simple copying and pasting of single DoView pages (Copying pages).
