Abstract

The live entertainment industry consistently delivers projects on time. Their overall commercial success is better than some traditional project management oriented industries, for example construction, which has a higher bankruptcy and litigation rate! This paper examines the practices of the entertainment industry, an industry that rarely, if ever, uses classical project management tools and techniques. This paper first identifies the primary cause of project success in this industry, the alignment of participants. The part of this paper is an assessment of the learnings between traditional project management industries' practices and those of the live entertainment business.
