Management Systems Implementation

“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.”
-Pete B., General Mgr-Telecom Solution Provider

“Without a doubt a subject expert. Their knowledge and network of resources (other quality experts, etc.) provide you with all the information you need to set up an outstanding quality management system or enhance and improve an existing one.
In addition, the method in which the information is relayed is such that you are learning as you go. It was very important to us and to McDCG that the system we set up together be a unique system that specifically worked for our unique company.
While working with McDCG we felt as though they were completely focused on us. They were always very responsive to our questions and needs. In addition, they offered a personal touch in which we were treated more as colleagues or partners working toward a common goal.”
-Lisa D, VP First Tier Automotive Supplier

“The McDCG consulting expertise is the best. Our clients have appreciated the depth of understanding and insight the McDCG consulting staff has brought to every project assigned. I would not hesitate to rely on them for any project, from the simple to the complex. I highly recommend The McDonald Consulting Group.”
-Scott D, President, ISO Consulting Service Provider

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.

Process Mapping/Process Improvement

“McDCG made the job interesting and enjoyable. They came into a very difficult situation, where habits were hard to break and attitudes were generally poor. We had absolutely no documented processes, and we had many problems. We were not even focusing on the right customer. McDCG handled the situation very well. We all learned much more than we expected during the projects.”
-Dr. Barbara F, Director, major university Masters Program

“Mary is a joy to work with, she is a take-charge person who is able to present ideas and training to implement and improve our Quality Management Systems (QMS). Her exemplary work ethic is unmatched in today’s workforce. She is a skilled communicator and recognized leader. She treats all staff members with respect and is exceptional at teaching.” – Joanna Z, Major Label manufacturer

Process Improvement/Lean Implementation

“McDonald Consulting Group gave us several solid recommendations; none of which involved hiring a new person. One of the major recommendations that I implemented was to restructure my work day. In the past, I had an open door policy and was having near constant interruptions. Thanks to McDCG, I’m being productive again… Other suggestions that have been implemented include outsourcing our marketing. The cost-savings have more than paid for the consulting fees.”
-Debbie M, RN, CEO, Healthcare Software Supplier

Internal Auditor Class

“Because of the nature of the class example/problem, it allowed significant insight into other aspects of the organization and the system of checks/balances in place… the course instructor was well-chosen for covering the material – knowledgeable, witty, personable, and an above-average facilitator.”
-Chris H, major Motor Manufacturer

“This is the best of the 6 Internal Auditor Training Courses I’ve attended [we are required to recertify annually]. This instructor knows the material, is an outstanding presenter, and does excellent, meaningful role play!”
-Dorothy B, Business Communications Provider
