Manhattan Strategy's Research & Evaluation division develops a tailored approach for each study that we design, develop and implement. Our overall approach is client- and best practices-driven. We incorporate continuous client feedback into every stage of our engagement, and consistently use that feedback to adapt and improve.

Anne Chamberlain
Director, Research and Evaluation

MSG's range of research and evaluation capabilities include the use of multiple methods to address issues as diverse as program implementation, integrity and impact. We recognize that each engagement is unique. We listen to clients and stakeholders to better understand their needs, and design a customized evaluation approach to yield actionable results.

We work with clients to address their research questions with appropriate and rigorous study designs, many of which use mixed methods. Our team's expertise includes developing instruments and protocols, and conducting a full range of data collection approaches, including creative use of extant data. Manhattan Strategy has built a library of data collection tools, systems, databases, and processes. Research staff often draw from these resources to efficiently and effectively meet client needs. Our team's expertise spans a wide range of quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods. Our traditional reporting can be augmented by the expertise of our colleagues in the Information & Dissemination division, equipping us with innovative reporting and dissemination options. When our clients seek guidance on how to use research findings, we collaborate with MSG's Technical Assistance division to ensure that our guidance is developed and delivered using best practices, to optimize clients' learning opportunity.
