Limitations and Suggestions for Future Research
Although this study provides important insights into the relationship between organizational structure and organizational ambidexterity for different firm types, the binary distinction between manufacturing and service firms denotes one important limitation. Participating firms were categorized into manufacturing and service firms based on their primary business activity. To what extent this primary business activity is related to the real ratio of manufacturing vs. service remains open. Therefore, this study may lack some generalizability with regard to the application of findings to pure manufacturing and service firms.
