Does anybody have any success stories to share about succesfully getting the company they work for to implement UX considerations into the development process and perhaps create a UX department that oversaw all of this?

Flex and the Halo model

Anyone on the list used Macromedia Flex and the "Halo experience model"?

I am working on a project where we are either going to build our own visual
gui toolkit / interface spec in flash or adopt the Halo model with some
changes. Our development group can handle the server client relationship
of things usining jsp's or the flex model. What I am trying to acertain is
if we can reduce the amount of custom "gui" design while preserving and
developing good interaction for the project we are working on.
