Abstract. The paper carries out managerial diagnostics (assessment) of the macroeconomic role of technological entrepreneurship in the context of its development strategy for the new economic conditions. The aim of the study is to determine the productivity (effectiveness and efficiency) of the activities of successful Russian technology entrepreneurial firms in terms of their contribution to economic growth in order to formulate proposals for improving the technology business development strategy. The research methodology is management diagnostics and economic analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of technology entrepreneurs based on an assessment of gross value added per employee, per ruble of assets. The method of comparative analysis of technology entrepreneurs with average indicators for the national economy and specific types of economic activity was also used. It has been established that so far the technology business does not provide higher factor productivity than the average in the national economy. Only a small part of technology entrepreneurs are significantly more efficient and effective than the country’s economy and the corresponding type of economic activity. One of the main reasons is the low level of depreciation, since the majority of technology entrepreneur’s work in the virtual sphere without real product content. Definitely lower factor productivity in the field of information and communication, definitely higher – in professional, scientific and technical activities. Technological entrepreneurs engaged in professional, scientific and technical activities have factor productivity several times higher than the average for this type of economic activity. The results can be used to inform strategic decisions at various levels. New developments of a real product, and not intangible ones, in particular, the creation of new software, have the greatest potential for national development. In the new economic conditions, it is necessary to place emphasis in the support policy on technological projects that implement basic innovations. The prospects for future research are related to the involvement of a wider range of technology entrepreneurs in the analysis, as well as the expansion of managerial indicators for evaluating and justifying decisions.

Keywords: strategy, management diagnostics, economic development, technological entrepreneurship, gross value added, performance, efficiency.
