Cross-Functional Teams: Reasons for Failure

Of course teams - including cross-functional teams - may fail: not achieving the set targets - or not efficiently, in terms of time/resources utilised - and, most critical, with members ending the team meeting dissatisfied, or frustrated, or convinced that it was a(nother) pure waste of time.
What are, to your opinion, the 3 most critical factors influencing the outcome (success/failure) of specifically cross-functional teams?

Why Cross Functional Teams Fail?

- Good concept, poor implementation.
- Wrong personality involved in the project. I am not referring to the diversity of the background of the member but rather on the attitude.
Same as with any team sport. A team with an all star cast can translate to a win but not necessarily to a championship.
