Reasons for failure

Mistakes and failures are caused sometimes because of human error. The causes of human error as described by Dr. Gawande in his seminal book The checklist manifesto are mainly two types one because of ignorance (either about the process or systems or about the subject matter people deal with) the other is because of ineptitude (this is an ability issue which cannot be addressed by intervention) .Ignorance can be resolved by experience or expertise . Ineptitude can only be resolved by skill upgrade.
