“Adriana and CornerStone helped our organization during a crucial time in our project to engage both our committee and other participants in this initiative.

Her passion for enhancing project management through improving efficiency was clear and insightful. Adriana’s business strategies and techniques are logical and can be applied in ‘the real world’, regardless of industry. Her ability to focus is extremely impressive and motivating. I would highly recommend Adriana to anyone interested in getting things done the smart way, both personally and professionally.”, Project Manager
“We hired Adriana and her team to assist our process gap identification work as we prepared to launch a new business management software program. After our second meeting(and some important discoveries), we expanded the scope of the CSD project to include ‘lead the process gap identification’ work and to create the detail training documents needed to ensure success. Adriana and her team where extremely knowledgeable and friendly. This created a level of trust and confidence with our staff which assisted in the process mapping and training execution/support they conducted. CornerStone Dynamics involvement in the project was of immense value to the site. Their professionalism, attention to detail and genuine concern to see us succeed was amazing. They truly were our strategic partners in the project and we would hire them again without hesitation.”, Shell Lubricants

“Adriana really knows her stuff. As a new Project Manager, I found myself working a lot of evenings sorting through email and getting prepared for the next day. Adriana, through her one on one coaching, has shown me with good planning and prioritizing, most of the job can be done during core business hours. My organizational systems have been upgraded and I am now more confident that I am spending my time on the most important tasks during my work day and daily planning is now a breeze. This has resulted in a greater sense of organization, more time with my family, and less overall stress.”, Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd.

“I think Adriana is a fantastic Project Manager. Her ability to walk into an organization and to quickly understand their business and the team is incredible. In order for a project to be successful you need to hold each person responsible and accountable and Adriana does this in a very professional and effective manner. Her attention to detail is incredible as is her ability to be on top of every key and critical aspect of the project. Any project is successful because of its participants and its leader and time and time again Adriana demonstrated her ability to lead and to manage a very complex and lengthy project. We were thrilled to have her as part of our team for the duration of this project.”, Accucaps Industries Ltd.

Adriana’s attention to detail, consistent and thorough follow-up as well as reliable professionalism enabled us to deliver on a project that had considerable timeline challenges. Her ability to grasp our business needs, understand the overall project and facilitate the interaction between different stakeholders, both internal and external, was instrumental in delivering on our end goal.
