Strengthen your partnership

As you review your evaluation data and share the findings with others in your partnership and through the broader community you may find that you have either the opportunity for new partners (e.g., there is a new partner who is excited about your work) or the need for new partners (e.g., you realize you need greater worksite support for the intervention to be effective).  Alternately, you may have the right partners at the table but you realize that the intervention is not being implemented as well as it could be because of partnership challenges.  For example, your intervention may rely on support from school administration, but that support is not materializing as you anticipated.  You might find that this is because of lack of understanding of need for the environmental or policy change, or lack of support for the change.  These are partnership challenges that interfere with the success of the program.
