Abstract:This study investigates the main effects of technological turbulence on external exploration, relative to internal exploration. Many studies have focused on the relationship between exploitation and exploration, but have paid less attention to knowledge exploration and have not considered its division between external and internal exploration. It is therefore important to test the impact of knowledge exploration with an impactful independent variable that could be argued to have a neutral effect; technological turbulence. A study of 42 firms was conducted, all from different industries. The data suggests that technological turbulence has a more positive relationship with external exploration than it does with internal exploration. Furthermore, limitations pertaining to the data are taken into account but it is hoped to improve this in further study.
