Getting To Outcomes (GTO) is a user-friendly, ten-step process for comprehensive planning, implementation guidance, and evaluation of programs and community initiatives. Research has shown that organizations that use GTO improve their programs and get better outcomes than organizations that do not use GTO.
This guide is intended to be used by military site prevention activity implementation teams that have obtained GTO training and are working to plan and implement a sexual assault prevention activity. This guide will lead users through the ten steps of GTO to assist with the planning, implementation, evaluation, continuous quality improvement, and sustainability of military sexual assault prevention activities.
This guide contains a chapter for each of the ten GTO steps. Each chapter in the guide contains blank tools to assist with that chapter's GTO step, completed examples of each tool, resources, and detailed instructions for completing the tools. It provides guidance on how to make decisions needed to plan and evaluate activities and then serves as a written record of those decisions for later evaluation.
