  2. Garnering Insufficient Support and Engagement from Stakeholders
  3. Limiting Efforts To Your City Boundaries
  4. Paying Insufficient Attention to Inclusiveness Issues
  5. Moving Forward with Inadequate Governance
  6. Working with No Clear Vision for the Program
  7. Downplaying the Essential Roles of Security and Privacy
  8. Sharing Successes and Failures Too Narrowly
