Instead of \"taking measures\" you could say \"taking precautions\" but you may want to avoid the rhyme of \"precautions\" with \"caution\".

If you want to stress the thinking in advance aspect, you could say \"foresight\" instead of \"caution\". Then you can use \"precautions\" without the rhyming problem. The sentence would thus be: \"and the lack of foresight in not taking adequate precautions\"
