Organisational Learning and Knowledge Capabilities Annual Conference 2018

Oral presentation by Dr Martin Rost and Eva Sonnenmoser, University of Stuttgart: Social networking of R&D middle managers in the automotive industry to facilitate ambidexterity
Martin Rost, Eva Sonnenmoser, Birgit Renzl

Ambidexterity – to balance exploitation and exploration activities and to connect them – is a big challenge for organisations. Linking exploitation and exploration activities is mainly a task of the top management team, but networking activities of other groups like managers in R&D can be very important, too. However, it is unclear, which contacts managers use in order to contribute to exploitation and exploration activities. The findings from three case studies in the automotive industry in Western Europe show that ego-networks used for exploration activities were more heterogeneous than those used for exploitation.
