    What does "taken" mean in this sentence?

    Taken overall, the project was a success.(Original sentence)

    I went through Collins dictionary, but I couldn't find the proper explanation at all.
    So I just guessed "Taken overall,~" means
    1."When if we consider the project overall,~" 2."If I commanded the project coverall,~"
    3."When we think the project overall,~"

    Am I right?
