Following a ‘consultative review’ method this paper identifies management research themes on the creative industries, drawing on interviews and validation exercises with managers and creative professionals, and over 130 journal articles, books, reports and working papers from several related literatures. The themes identified are the following: • Integration and Disintegration: namely, the impact of digital tools and distribution, and collaboration and outsourcing relationships; • Understanding how Innovation Changes Business Models and Markets; • The Creative Process and Organisation; • Management Capabilities and Skills; • Small Firms and Growth. Uniquely, the paper shows where research attention is needed, where it has focused so far, and where future investigation would best serve the concerns of practice, as well as theory. The paper shows that Intellectual Property is a high priority set of issues for managers and scholars, yet it is embedded within a broader tableau of forces and shifts.
