By Tatjana-Xenia Puhan, Prof. Dr. Jetta Frost

Key for winning wisdom administration is a stability among exploration and exploitation. possibility arises while exploration is missed in favour of exploitation due to the fact that could lead to a firm which lacks innovation strength. with the intention to hinder this, an idea has been recommend in contemporary wisdom administration study known as ambidexterity, this means that the simultaneous and balanced pursuing of either exploration and exploitations activities.

Tatjana-Xenia Puhan follows up in this concept via concluding that ambidexterity don't need to unavoidably be applied in a single unmarried association yet is usually realised in a community of linked enterprises. The interorganizational ambidexterity relies on co-specialisation: one service provider is dedicated completely to exploration whereas linked companies specialise in their competences in exploitation. moreover, the writer develops the idea that of imagine tanks as corporations that target radical techniques whereas their community affiliates take advantage of this newly generated wisdom commercially. opposed to the history of the hitherto mostly inconclusive debate, this paintings is a phenomenal contribution either to wisdom administration learn and to sensible organisational structuring.

Additional resources for Balancing Exploration and Exploitation by Creating Organizational Think Tanks

Example text

Garcia et al. (2003) suggest that the viability of new knowledge as well as the effective application of skills in new technologies depend largely on organizational adaptive capacities. In addition, they consider adaptive capacity as having a mitigating effect on R&D risks. ) especially for its enhancing effects on explorative activities. In the context of this work it is of additional special interest that Lavie and Rosenkopf (2006) reveal a positive relationship between organizational adaptive capacity and knowledge generating R&D alliances.

This is especially valid for small or medium-sized companies that struggle with the high resource and skill requirements of today’s exploration but it is also important for large cooperations (cf. 2). Ÿ Extracting explorative activities from the single organization context can efficiently reveal senior management. It may also prevent never ending rivalries for resources between the diametric units. In addition an excessive concentration on exploitation due to shareholders’ pressure on the management is presumably mitigated.

However, it has to be noted that they test only on ambidexterity in general. 3) – that could also be considered as influencing the intensity of the impact of ambidexterity. g. March, 1991). By reducing the intragroup variance-to-mean performance ratio, ambidexterity creates an important synergistic effect that makes it superior to a one dimensional approach (He & Wong, 2004). Birkinshaw and Gibson (2004) also find a positive relationship between ambidexterity and the business unit performance. This is also supported by the findings of Van Looy et al.
