Abstract

The assumption made by research on ambidexterity is that enterprises operating ambidextrously perform better as a result. Similarly, the beneficial effects of ambidexterity are often assumed to be invariant across different contexts, such as sector. However, as is widely acknowledged in the literature, there is a paucity of evidence on which to base these assumptions. To address this issue, in this note we examine evidence from the Community Innovation Survey covering 15 countries and 45,113 enterprises. The paper shows a strong, positive effect on growth in sales turnover from ambidexterity in the manufacturing and the scientific and technical services sectors.
