Next steps in the dialogue: insights for practicing and theorizing Charlotte Gilmore and Nic Beech; Index.

Organizational theorists have become increasingly interested in the creative industries, where practices that are commonplace are of particular interest to organizations in other sectors as they look for new ways to enhance performance. Focusing on the music industry, this book sets up a unique dialogue between leading organizational theorists and music professionals. Part I explores links between organization theory and the creative industries literature, concentrating on practices of organizing and knowledge mobilisation, followed by an in-depth discussion of key theoretical concepts by subject experts. Part II provides a diverse range of 'tales from the field', including examples from classical orchestras, folk, indie and punk. The concluding chapter examines the shared dialogue to reveal what practice in the musical field can learn from organizational theory, and vice versa. This innovative book will interest graduate students and researchers in the fields of organization studies, music management, and the creative industries.
