    Abstract

    AHRC/ESRC Workshops 2006-2008 The Discipline of Creativity: Exploring the Paradox. Creative industries pose distinct managerial and organizational challenges revolving around five different elements or characteristics: (a) the inherent unknowability of the outcome and success of creative endeavour (the nobody knows property); (b) the intrinsic motivation beyond economic concerns (art for art’s sake property); (c) the range of factors that sustain appreciation of creative work (infinite variety property); (d) the reliance on the skills of a number of talented individuals for creative production (motley crew property); (e) and the importance both of complex temporal coordination, timeliness, and the often limited durability of creative products (time flies and ars longa properties).
    The workshops were held at the University of St Andrews from October 2006 to February 2008.
