Abstract: The main objective of this research is to investigate how organizational ambidexterity can be achieved at a modern organization. A concise review of key studies conducted until today consolidates the state of academic research on the subject of organizational ambidexterity, as the ambidexterity concept has been gaining increased attention from scholars. The systematic search of the literature published since 1991, composed of 122 articles, has revealed various research perspectives with respect to organizational ambidexterity. The research tools that have been employed were the systematic data collection processes, qualitative data analysis techniques, and data synthesis of the selected research output. The results of this review have shown that researchers have been studying ambidexterity from various angles and in various literature streams. They have been focusing on multiple external and internal organizational factors that affect ambidexterity and have been analyzing these moderators in terms of performance metrics and degree of their influence on ambidexterity. This study concludes with future research directions and propositions on the subject of organizational ambidexterity.
