Welcome to Management Solutions Group, Inc.

Hello, I'm Gary Heerkens, President of Management Solutions Group.Welcome to our website! Before browsing the site, please allow me to briefly familiarize you with our company.           

Management Solutions Group specializes in project management. We know project management inside and out. We don't sell products and services -- we offer solutions.  Our goal is to improve the effectiveness of everyone who practices project management -- individuals, teams, managers, and organizational executives.

Our solutions are as varied as our clients, and include education, methodology development, process improvement, coaching, and  application tools. If you have a problem that's impacting your project management effectiveness,  I'm absolutely certain that Management Solutions Group can help.

I'm so certain, in fact, that I offer every client my guarantee of satisfaction -- an unheard of practice in this business. Simply stated, if you're not convinced that we've helped you improve your effectiveness in project management...you owe us nothing.

 

Our Approach--Total Solutions

Management Solutions Group strives to be a total solutions provider. Though headquartered in Rochester, NY, we're affiliated with a broad network of talented professionals. Everyone we are connected with has extensive practical experience. If your need lies outside our expertise, we’ll tap into our network to get you the best possible support.

Our unique approach begins with listening. We firmly believe that we cannot offer you effective solutions until we fully understand you and your needs. Once we do, we will work with you to develop the best response. This kind of collaborative approach is one of the many things that makes Management Solutions Group unique.

The solutions to your problems or needs are as simple as contacting us and requesting an exploratory discussion.
