1. Scott, Nehemiah D. Antecedents and Outcomes of Ambidexterity in the Supply Chain: Theoretical Development and Empirical Validation.

Degree: PhD, Manufacturing and Technology Management, 2015, University of Toledo

As the degree of uncertainty and intensity within the complex business environment continues to increase, firms are forced to make timely changes to their product and process technologies. Such environments are often characterized by unpredictable demand patterns, rapid industry clockspeed, and heightened competitive intensity. As a result, firms face many difficulties in realizing sustained and superior performance, and are at risk of realizing decreases in market and financial performance. Firms can alleviate this risk by engaging in innovation practices that enable them to secure current profitability (efficiently serving existing customer segments) alongside future viability (adapting to meet the demand of new customer segments).Simultaneously serving existing and breakthrough product markets means that organizations must be able to balance paradoxical tensions in their innovation management capabilities. Ambidexterity is one such capability, in which the successful balance of exploration and exploitation promises to offer supernormal business performance. While the performance benefits of ambidexterity have been noted, research has not yet adequately sought to understand whether a firm’s decision to pursue ambidexterity is contingent on certain business environment factors. Likewise, research has also not yet explored the intangible resources a firm must build and/or acquire and manage after deciding to pursue ambidexterity. Additionally, because no single firm can adapt and survive without the same being achieved by its supply chain partners, ambidexterity in supply chain capabilities is vital. However, the literature base examining the importance of ambidexterity in the supply chain is scarce. Lastly, ambidexterity and the process for implementing it within the firm and across the supply chain remains misunderstood amongst practitioners.To fill the aforementioned research gaps, this study builds a strategic innovation-based and interdisciplinary theoretical framework of ambidexterity that links environmental antecedents, ambidextrous resources, ambidextrous supply chain capabilities, innovation outcomes and firm performance. The central purpose of this research is to explore and advance the scholarly understanding of how organizations within complex business environments can leverage their supply chains to successfully implement ambidexterity, and to empirically validate assertions concerning the antecedents and outcomes of ambidexterity within the supply chain. This research seeks to explore how characteristics of a complex environment influence a firm’s decision to invest in internal (ambidextrous firm resources) and external (ambidextrous alliance portfolio) resources. This study also examines the relationship between ambidextrous supply chain capabilities (ambidextrous supply chain collaboration and supply chain adaptability), innovation outcomes (innovation ambidexterity) and firm performance (market and financial performance). In fulfilling this purpose, this research utilizes and integrates literature… Advisors/Committee Members: Hong, Dr. Paul (Committee Co-Chair), Tarafdar, Dr. Monideepa (Committee Co-Chair).
