Abstract
This article proposes a new approach to the classification of management structures and costs in the innovation system of an industrial plant. The need for the establishment of a new classification of the types of management structures has been argued based on an analysis of literature sources. With the differentiating of unexplored management structures, some of their most typical characteristics have been defined. A concept for management costs in industrial plants and possible methods for their reduction have been presented.

Specific proposals have been indicated to reduce management costs which are presented in the following areas: improving the qualifications of employees; changing the specialisation of managers; changing the number of managers in the hierarchy; changing the optimal rate control; increasing the rate of exchange of information flows between performers and managers; rearranging the hierarchy; reducing workplace organisational costs.
