Technological innovation is universally recognised as a major generator of economic progress, producing mild—and sometimes major—changes, in existing technologies, attitudes, methods of operation, and patterns of demand, which in turn can engender resistance from those parties chiefly affected.

Imponderables such as these are widely acknowledged as the sources of the uncertainty traditionally associated with radical innovative projects.
