dc.description.abstractIn a dynamic environment, companies that want to gain competitive advantages need not only to integrate their internal resources but also to absorb external resources through the enterprise network and then use these resources to innovate and subsequently achieve their corporate strategic goals. However, the exploitative innovation advocated by Chinese companies has led to a serious lack of exploratory innovation capabilities, which has caused Chinese companies to fall into the trap of “lack of technology-technology introduction-lack of technology”; moreover, 80% of core technologies and key products are controlled by developed countries, and international competitors often constrain the development of Chinese companies by restricting the exports of these key products. To resolve this dilemma, Chinese companies need to pay attention to both exploitative innovation and exploratory innovation, that is, ambidextrous innovation. Therefore, that study the influence of enterprise network on competitive advantage from the perspective of dynamic capability and ambidextrous innovation have great theoretical value and practical value. Based on the above research background, this study proposes a “resource–capacity– innovation–advantage” research framework and uses enterprise network theory, dynamic capability theory, ambidextrous innovation theory, and competitive advantage theory to analyse the impacts of tie strength/network centrality on dynamic capabilities, ambidextrous innovation, and competitive advantages and to explore the inner mechanism between enterprise networks and competitive advantages from the perspectives of dynamic capabilities and ambidextrous innovation. Structural equation modelling was used to test all hypotheses. 384 valid questionnaires that were collected from China National High-Tech Industrial Development Zones were entered into the structural equation modelling. The result showed that enterprise networks, dynamic capabilities, and ambidextrous innovation have a significant positive impact on the competitive advantages of Chinese high-tech companies. Moreover, the influence of tie strength/network centrality has a stronger effect on the competitive advantages of manufacturing companies; However, dynamic capabilities and ambidextrous combinations have a greater effect on the competitive advantages of service companies. Our results also show that tie strength/network centrality have positive effects on dynamic capabilities, and dynamic capabilities have a partial mediating effect between tie strength/network centrality and competitive advantages, revealing the internal mechanism between enterprise networks and competitive advantages and answering the question “why do companies located in the same enterprise network have differences in their competitive advantages?”. Besides, the results show that tie strength/network centrality and dynamic capabilities have significantly positive effects on the ambidextrous combination, but not for the ambidextrous balance, excepting for the tie strength, indicating that only the ambidextrous combination has a mediating effect between network centrality and competitive advantages. Moreover, the interaction of dynamic capabilities and the ambidextrous combination also played a mediating effect between enterprise networks and competitive advantage. These findings not only clarified the importance of enterprise networks, dynamic capabilities, ambidextrous innovation to competitive advantages but also revealed the internal mechanism between enterprise networks and competitive advantages. Besides, the results of the multi-group analysis suggested the Chinese Government encourage manufacturing enterprises with resource advantages to carry out an ambidextrous combination, but the manufacturing companies with resource advantages lack reform motivation because that most manufacturing companies focus on achieving low-cost advantages through mass production, while service companies with strong reform motivation have difficulty achieving ambidextrous innovation due to insufficient resources, indicating the Chinese Government may encounter more difficulties in the process of promoting innovation reform. th
