The article presents the results of research on inter-organizational relationships and the balance between exploring and exploiting knowledge, referred to as ambidexterity. An overview of related previous studies is provided, along with details of the research protocol, which involved a major luxury automobile firm. It was found that autonomous corporate governance structures prevailed within vertical relationships with suppliers, whereas horizontal relationships with competitors tended to favor integrated governance.
