Abstract

In this paper, the function mechanism of the ambidextrous oriented (control-oriented and flexibility-oriented) organizational attributes-centralization, formalization, risk taking and organizational redundancy on the enterprises’ radical innovation was discussed. The two knowledge acquisition modes, namely knowledge exploration and knowledge exploitation, were introduced to be as the mediating variables to construct the conceptual model of “organizational attributes - knowledge acquisition - radical innovation”, and then the structural equation model was applied to carry out the empirical researches to the enterprises with active radical innovation in Yangtze River delta region. The results show that: (1) the control-oriented organizational attributes have a negative effect on the knowledge exploration and the radical innovation; (2)the flexibility-oriented organizational attributes have a positive effect on the knowledge exploration and the radical innovation; (3) the flexibility-oriented organizational attributes have no significant effect on the knowledge exploitation; (4) the knowledge exploration played a mediating effect on the organizational attributes and the radical innovation; (5) the knowledge exploitation has no significant mediating effect on the organizational attributes and radical innovation.
