Ambidexterity (originating from Latin ambo “both” and dextera “right hand”) means the ability to use both hands equally well. Within the framework of organizational ambidexterity, it is intended to illustrate the importance of integrating exploitation (taking advantage of what already exists) and exploration (discovering something new).
Research¹ has shown that organizations mastering ambidexterity are more successful than those lacking this ability.
Ambidextrous competencies of decision makers ensure the company’s future success. Frameworks and methods for sharpening these competencies are therefore the essential core in our business consulting services.
