Subject The article deals with integrated assessment of petrochemical enterprises' preparedness for innovation project implementation.
Objectives The study focuses on developing and practical testing the methodology for overall assessment of preparedness of petrochemical enterprises to realize innovation projects.
Methods We employ the systems approach, general scientific methods of analysis and synthesis, expert, statistical, and graphic methods and techniques.
Results We have developed a method to perform an integrated assessment of preparedness of petrochemical sector enterprises to implement innovative solutions. It enables to determine their rating for taking management decisions by the parent company of a holding group.
Conclusions The scientific merit of the paper is that it presents a new methodological approach to assess petrochemical enterprises in terms of their preparedness for innovation project implementation. The practical significance is that it highlights the importance of using a system of indicators which considers external and internal drivers when the management of a holding take decisions to invest in a subsidiary.
