I went through the first couple dozen hits on Google for "barrier SOA adoption", and identified a number of competing ideas. (Some links no longer current / available.)

Todd Biske adds

While resistance to change and the organization itself are somewhat the same thing, my instinct is that it's the broader organization that is typically the barrier, and it's usually that the entire org is resistant to change. (May 11, 2007)
