Used methods: the included supervision, interviewing, an expert estimation, an interrogation by special technique which we have created. Statistical methods. Empirical basis: the innovative enterprises created on the basis of high schools, and traditionally developing large industrial enterprises. Two parameters have been put on the basis of innovative culture model designing: time; sphere of planning. These two parameters form horizontal levels of model. 1. Level of mission. 2. Level of professional work. 3. Level of current (professional) activity. All three levels of the model have the same cultural characteristics on each level.
