And adding this too maybe...

6. Ability

So many places spend at least the first month failing to get
swipe cards, door access, codes, security details and logins
to equipment. Usually unless you've added:

7. No Blame Culture

Then not having the ability to get one's work done usually
ends in 1. Acheivement of nothing, 2. Recognition of failure
3. Blame for not having done the work, personal (4.) reponsibility
for not having got it fixed and 5. advancement to the exit door.

Imho as a contractor...
