Recap a software implementation project you experienced.

Recap a software implementation project that you have experienced. Describe your role as well as the purpose and results of the project (or expected results if the project is still in progress). Then, identify three issues or trade-offs that you would like to have seen done differently. Explain the long term "costs" - the impact - of those choices. Then give us an overview of the corporate success measures.
