Learning two things at once : a new scale for ambidexterity

  • This research evaluates current measurement scales for ambidexterity and proposes a new approach for the measurement of this important construct. We argue that current measurement approaches may be unsuitable to capture the concept of ambidexterity. Through a systematic scale development process, we derive a measurement scale with dual items that simultaneously refer to both dimensions, exploitation and exploration, thus reflecting the true nature of ambidexterity. An extensive pre-test with 39 executives suggests that our scale is suitable for capturing ambidexterity. Our measurement model enhances conceptual clarity of ambidexterity and can serve as a base for future investigations of the concept.
