Our research and evaluation division works with our clients to develop tailored solutions that effectively address their research questions, use the most appropriate and rigorous research methodologies, employ effective data collection strategies, and provide timely, actionable analyses to meet all study objectives.

The MSG team’s expertise includes designing complex studies, developing qualitative and quantitative instruments, conduction data collection and analysis, creating and manipulating complex databases, working with statistical software packages, and producing and disseminating briefing materials and technical reports.

Senior Fellow

MSG's range of research and evaluation capabilities use multiple methods to address issues as diverse as program integrity, data and cost analysis, performance improvements, and program impact. Recognizing that each engagement is unique, we listen to clients to better understand their needs and design a customized evaluation approach to yield practical and usable results that prepare programs to meet the challenges ahead.

MSG’s overall approach to designing and implementing multi-method research and evaluation studies is heavily client- and best practices-driven. This allows us to respond to the complex research requirements of many different types of clients and has enabled MSG to build a library of data collection tools, systems, databases, and processes that we can tailor to meet each client’s needs.

MSG strives to provide flexible solutions because we are aware of our clients changing context and needs. We incorporate continuous client feedback into every stage of an engagement, and consistently use that feedback to adapt and improve. In addition, MSG provides strategic dissemination of aggregate findings. We document successes, challenges, and everything in between, and ultimately help our clients achieve optimal sustainability and impact.
