The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the introduction of the Industry 4.0 innova-tions create a unique opportunity for enterprises to increase productivity, opera-tional efficiency and rational use of resources, scale up successful pilot projects and acquire qualitatively new expertise for employees. The current stage of mod-ernisation of production can provide a significant impetus for economic growth and is a priority for governments and business leaders. Therefore, it is important to study project management strategies in the context of digital transformation in order to implement them in the enterprises of Kazakhstan. The purpose of the pa-per is to investigate the features and specifics of project management in modern conditions and search for methods of sustainable development of the state. The leading research method was the analysis, which made it possible to identify global trends in the field of project management for the implementation of innovations, as well as to assess the current state of enterprises in Kazakhstan after the Gov-ernment of the Republic of Kazakhstan approved the State Program "Digital Ka-zakhstan". As a result of the study, the features of project management for creat-ing a platform for the implementation of the Industry 4.0 for sustainable devel-opment of the state were identified. The authors concluded that the knowledge in-tensive business services need a deep understanding of user preferences and needs. Data-driven business models are the entry point for the digital transformation of enterprises.

Keywords: industry 4.0, innovations, modern technologies, enterprise modernisa-tion, management.
