Your thread reminds me of the 'Lessons Learned' wrap-up meetings we're forced to endure at the end of one of our projects when us mere mortals at the coal face have an opportunity to discuss with the Armchair Admirals, who never get their feet wet or their hands dirty, what went well, or not so well...
The recurring lesson is, of course, always the same but is never learned: 'If you'd involved us earlier in the process we could have saved you bundles of time, heartache, stress and money'.
Good to know you got it sorted and hat's off to you for sharing your pain.
