The smart city thought alludes to better of organising city functions and urban life, which are accepted to move production and consumption from worldwide to local, manufacturing from competitive to collaborative, and business from stakeholders to a customer point of view. Policy makers have addressed the need for sustainable development and increasing urban population density in part by using smart city theory and practices. Current smart city frameworks are best categorized as descriptive theories. There has been a gap in the literature regarding smart cities. Most past research has focussed on the societal level of smart cities, while less appears to be recognised about the management of business as part of smart cities. The determination of this paper is to present a systematic review on the state of the art of management research on smart cities. A total of 20 papers which based on midsized smart-designated cities have been discussed. Those research papers mostly collected data from government websites and city manager surveys. This paper emphasised on the policy and societal level issues which create hurdles in developing smart cities. The review on the literature of smart city framework creates the roadmap for the use in both future research and for cities planners to advance smart city development and to act as responsible stewards for stakeholders who rely on researcher’s directions.
