Combining Networks, Ambidexterity and Absorptive Capacity to Explain Commercialization of Innovations: A Theoretical Model from Review and Extension

Avimanyu Datta


From a thorough review of literature we investigate the key antecedents and mediators to commercialization of innovations. We posit that a firm’s network, absorptive capacity and ambidexterity (ability to explore and exploit) each affect commercialization of Innovations. Further, we showed that networks are antecedents to absorptive capacity and ambidexterity, and absorptive capacity is an antecedent to ambidexterity. We integrate these concepts together and present an integrated theoretical model for further research.
