Janette McDonald Consulting services uses a disciplined approach to accelerate product development and mitigate the risk of launching a product that does not meet consumer expectations for quality or price, by combining Best Practice Product Development and a strategic management tool called Stage GateTM. 

This means you are given practical tools to assist you to regularly test consumer feedback and make informed decisions during the product development process.
