The Show must go on : A paper concerning project management in the entertainment industry (English)
Abstract [sv]

Underhållningsbranschen är en bransch som alltid arbetat i projektform. Trots det finns det inte tillräckligt med empiriska studier på projektledning inom underhållningsbranschen, speciellt inte i Sverige. Många författare menar att de teorier som finns kring projektledning är för ensidiga och inte kan tillämpas på alla former av projekt. För att öka kunskapen inom projektledning behövs därför fler empiriska studier inom olika typer av branscher. Projekt i underhållningsbranschen är intressanta, mycket på grund av att de till skillnad från andra branscher oftast lyckas hålla tiden. The show must go on.

Syftet med denna uppsats är att utveckla en differentierad förståelse för projektledarskap inom underhållningsbranschen. Detta för att ge ett bidrag till den företagsekonomiska diskussionen kring projektledning samt öka den empiriska kunskapen inom denna typ av bransch.

Studien är hermeneutisk och forskningsansatsen är abduktiv. Den empiriska undersökningen har genomförts genom fallstudier där kvalitativa ostrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med fyra projektledare i underhållningsbranschen.

Studien visar fyra olika typer av projektledare som alla har olika förhållningssätt till sitt projektledarskap. Deras projektledarskap har formats genom deras tidigare erfarenheter, deras personligheter samt påverkas av organisationens storlek.

Abstract [en]

The entertainment industry has always worked on a project basis. Still, there are not enough empirical studies on project management in the entertainment industry, especially not in Sweden. Many authors claim that the existing theories about project management are too one-sided and cannot be applied to all projects. To increase the knowledge of project management we need more empirical studies on various types of industries. Projects in the entertainment industry are interesting largely because they, unlike other industries, mostly manage to keep the time limit. The show must go on.

The purpose of this paper is to develop a differentiated understanding of project management in the entertainment industry. The aim is to give a contribution to the discussion around project management in the field of business administration and to increase the empirical knowledge in this type of industry.

The study has been addressed from a hermeneutic and abductive approach. The empirical study has been conducted through qualitative unstructured interviews with project managers in the entertainment industry. The study shows four different types of project managers that all have different approaches to their leadership which has been developed trough both past experiences and their personalities. How they lead their projects also depends on the size of the organization.
