As with any software implementation, there will be unexpected surprises and challenges you will need to overcome.  As a community, we need to help each other out by sharing our experiences deploying Mifos.  Create a deployment case study on mifos.org so you can highlight why and how you're using Mifos, document your lessons learned, share best practices and advice, and give fellow community members tips on how to smoothly roll out Mifos.

You can create this document after your deployment has been completed (as a retrospective) or midway through a deployment (as an ongoing live case study). To create a deployment case study for your deployment:

1. Create an account on mifos.org
2. Click the link to create a deployment case study.
3. Follow this template for suggestions on what to document.
4. Send an email to the mifos-users mailing list.

We need all the grass-roots effort we can get to grow the Mifos community. Email mifos@grameenfoundation.org and a member of the community will help you organize and promote the event.
