They define an event or condition that is external to the program or activity and that is of direct importance to the intended beneficiaries and/or the public.

While measurement|performance measures must distinguish between outcomes and outputs, there must be a reasonable connection between them, with outputs supporting (i.e., leading to) outcomes in a logical fashion.[2]
