1.   Failure to understand upside risk, thus the comfort zone is the safe heaven

2.   The greatest monster and competition alive – the status quo

3.   Communications

4.   Fear of the unknown

5.   Bad reward, incentive, training, developmental systems

6.   Failure to focus on workforce alignment, companies are to people or silo centric

7.   Groupthink of project teams

8.   Power and politics – the saving face game

9.   Motivation

10. The cousin of Groupthink – peer pressure
