Excellent points Brenda.

Here are a couple of additional ones to consider:

7) Equating your enterprise architecture with your technological implementation/infrastructure

8) Assuming that what is policy today is sacred and cannot be changed

9) Expecting efficiencies to emerge rather than business innovation opportunities
