In the XXI century, the key to rapid socio-economic development is to have an effective innovation policy, aimed at introducing high "disruptive" technologies, new ways to organise and manage work, advanced inventions, and the means to progress scientific and technical achievements.

The formation of an innovative economy in Kazakhstan is a complexity of economic, social, and political issues. An effective use of research findings and developments in the real economy is most important in terms of Kazakhstan’s successful competitiveness, assurance for high economic growth, improved quality of life, and to help realize other innovative priorities. In these circumstances, innovation management and development is becoming more relevant as the basis for developing Kazakh companies, by way of a defined set of relevant technical, operational, organizational, marketing, and financial operations.

The purpose of this study is to identify characteristics and practical recommendations for the development and further improvement of management mechanisms relating to the innovative activity of enterprises in Kazakhstan. The study used a systematic approach of comparison, scientific abstraction, data collection, analysis and synthesis, applied expertise, and statistical methods. The core value of the work was to support the feasibility of a system for Kazakh enterprises to promote innovative activity and the development of high technologies.
