What are the top ways in which organizations fail to adopt or fully implement Scrum and/or Agile?

Number 1: Lack of executive sponsorship. This includes a lack of political will, and/or a failure to accept the deep change that will be involved.

Number 2: Availability of fake alternatives, including pseudo-agile processes that are tool dependent or which mimic existing organizational practices.

Thanks Ian. What are some ways to help executives accept that deep change required?

Mark

Here are some real examples of that, as Ian says they are pretty much spot on.
