"Of the top 11 factors HR executives cited as the most common causes for CEO succession failure, eight pertained to deficiencies in interpersonal skills -- failure to build relationships and a team environment, a mismatch for the corporate culture, inability to win company support, being egotistical, not flexible, poor management skills, poor communication and lack of political savvy."

One conclusion what that selection criteria for CEOs may focus too little concern for the human collaboration side of the equation. Something that Agile values and principles embrace. I feel there may be a systemic problem with leadership Emotional Intelligence (EI).
