Abstract

Organization ambidexterity is crucial for long-term survival and success of an organization, but has proven to be difficult to achieve. Understanding the factors that allow for attaining organizational ambidexterity has thus become a major quest. Adding to this line of research, we investigate the role of strategic planning in the pursuit of organizational ambidexterity. Drawing on prior literature, we posit that the presence of leaders’ innovation orientation is instrumental in creating an enabling perception of strategic planning so that it can unfold a positive effect on organizational ambidexterity. Our results from a survey with 217 firms support this assumption. They are robust for different ways of operationalizing organizational ambidexterity and when including several control variables. Apart from the positive interaction effect we find a positive main effect of innovation orientation on organizational ambidexterity, highlighting the importance of considering this strategic orientation in future studies on antecedents of organizational ambidexterity.
