The Influence of Corporate Networks on Competitive Advantage: The Mediating Effect of Ambidextrous Innovation
Ms. Huayun Wang, a recent Ph.D. graduate of ICO NIDA, published her dissertation in the “Journal of Technology Analysis & Strategic Management”, which is ranked in the “SCImago Quartile 2”. Her work is under supervision of Dr. Chih-Cheng Fang (Francis)
Corporate networks are important channels through which external resources can be acquired, but the effect of corporate networks on competitive advantage remains unclear. Therefore, we use a structural equation model to examine the relationship between corporate networks, ambidextrous innovation, and competitive advantage with a sample of 384 high-tech enterprises gathered from Zhongguancun in Beijing and Shenzhen High-tech Industrial Development Zone. The results show that both corporate networks and ambidextrous innovation had positive effects on competitive advantage; moreover, the relationship between corporate networks and competitive advantage was mediated only by ambidextrous combination. The results of the multi-group analysis also show corporate networks had a stronger effect on manufacturers’ competitive advantage and ambidextrous combinationth an that of service enterprises; while the ambidextrous combination had a greater effect on competitive advantages of service enterprises. These findings suggest that enterprise executives should pay more attention to ambidextrous combinations to increase the efficiency of corporate networks, and also suggest that the Chinese Government should use manufacturing companies in pilot schemes for innovative reform due to their resource advantage.
