Nonprofit organizations must self-assess their programming and partnerships in order to function effectively. This project assessed the programming and partnerships of the Port Phillip EcoCentre. Our program analysis determined that the EcoCentre’s programming should focus on: participant survey consistency, obtain feedback data on multi-session programs, engage more through hands-on learning, and maintain their current quality of programming. We created knowledge flow maps to evaluate the flow of knowledge between the EcoCentre and its stakeholders, and a stakeholder diagram to evaluate the stakeholders’ level of significance. We concluded that the PPEC should focus their effort on their most connected stakeholders, and those relationships that can produce systemic change.
