This article is a reinterpretation of the basic, upper-level concepts of the strategic process of innovation commercialization. Despite a significant theoretical understanding of this topic, an expert group of managers and technology transfer centers employees of Russian universities, technology brokers and innovative entrepreneurs in their daily work face not always the right understanding of both the main strategic goals of the commercialization process and the details of the process itself. This, as a result, is expressed in a number of inflated expectations and misconceptions about how this process should be organized and what strategic results to expect from it.

In addition, attention is paid to the goal-setting of innovation activities in strategic planning from the point of view of different actors of the innovation market and participants in the process
