It must foresee many-sided, integral description of case frame as systems management. Therefore the paradigm of system description of activity a cluster and his participants (as autonomous units) has been outlined as the aim of the article. It is established, that the Balanced Scorecard the most expedient paradigms (model) of system description a cluster activities and its autonomous participants. It’s forms on basis elements of system description – the complex instruments that transformer the target of autonomous participants in cluster task and cluster Key Performance Indicators. Such base elements of system description it is expedient to consider: the system of determination, the decoupling aims and balancing aims, the complex instruments of «aimsfacilities»; «aims-criteria», the intercommunications of substantial factors and the structure of periods of time; the infrastructures of responsibility; cascading systems of control indicators; the systems of collection and analysis of data.
