Hello, and welcome to the Steadman Group’s blogosphere!

We are excited to be up and running with a spot to share the lessons we’ve learned across our collective projects and years of experience in healthcare consulting for the common good. At least once a month, one of our team members will post about lessons learned from project implementation in their respective area(s) of expertise. With this blog, our goal is to spread our learning as far as possible, to reduce duplication of efforts and make this kind of knowledge accessible to anyone who might be interested. 

We hope that you enjoy our posts. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to if you’d like to learn more!

Happy reading,
