Welcome! How can we help?


You’re doing OK, but could be doing better – you want to eliminate or reduce defects; you want to redesign the process flow more efficiently; you want to improve your ISO or Lean processes.

Sounds difficult – but it’s not.  Let us help you Quell The Overwhelm™.


You’re worried that you’ll send your employees offsite to a training course, when all they care about is the location.

Or that the training will be so generic that it won’t resonate with your folks.

Or that the examples won’t be something they can relate to…

You’ve seen all the letters — APQP, PPAP, FMEA, etc. — and know you can (and should) be doing these better than you are. Wouldn’t you like an accurate document that’s easy to read and maintain?

Wouldn’t it be great to do corrective actions ONCE and have them accepted every single time?

“After considerable research, we selected The McDonald Consulting Group as our ISO transition resource. In a very short time, we knew that we had made the right choice. Mary is a subject matter expert that responded to our needs with very short notice. The McDonald Consulting Group not only developed and provided effective on-site training sessions and workshops specific to our needs, but also engaged as an extension of our management team to develop systems. The on-going support provided by the McDonald Consulting Group has been exceptional.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Mary McDonald on two occasions; once conducting an internal audit and the other, a more extensive exercise, reconstructing our R2/EMS/OHS Management System to accommodate significant operational changes. The internal audit that Mary conducted during our 2018 cycle covered R2, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001. Mary’s knowledge and professionalism throughout the audit was exceptional. While thorough certification audits can be demanding and to a degree stressful, I had a deep appreciation for her attention to detail. When the compliance audit was conducted by the certifying body there were no surprises. During the course of 2019 Nave’s operation was going through significant changes, which required an evolution of our R2/EMS/OHS Management System. We were working with compressed timelines to ensure a seamless transition of our program, at the same time upgrading our system to the new ISO 45001 standard. Mary put together a very detailed and aggressive project plan that she executed on flawlessly that got us the certifications we have today. Mary has essentially become a valued member of our team; a colleague as opposed to your average consultant. Her comprehensive knowledge of these certifications has been invaluable in regards to creating a fully integrated system. If you’re serious about a R2/EMS/OHS Management System and are seeking a partner to achieve your objectives, Mary is the person for the job.
