barriers to innovation?

Here’s a question for today – what are your biggest barriers to innovation?

The one that I run up against the most myself is institutional inertia. Risk aversion is probably the biggest barrier that I’ve run into in my consulting and research. But I’m interested in hearing about yours in the comments!
