Public sector innovation has become more important than ever with the increasing complexity of the environment; yet, the choice between control and flexibility in the innovation process poses a dilemma. Organizational ambidexterity asserts that organizations possess the ability to respond by exploring and exploiting simultaneously, while contextual ambidexterity is a means to achieve organizational ambidexterity.
Public museums have a relatively flat organization structure and emphasize more on innovation, although they face institutional pressures and receive limited government funding. As public museums possess organizational ambidexterity characteristics, it is even more vital to cultivate a work atmosphere of contextual ambidexterity.Related studies have argued that leadership behavior has an important effect on innovative behavior; however, studies have rarely discussed the mediators affecting the relationship between the two at the organizational level. Moreover, organization systems and resource characteristics are also important factors that promote the achievement of strategic goals; yet, studies on whether these factors affect leadership behavior, contextual ambidexterity, and innovative behavior are few and far between.
According to the results of cross-level analysis conducted in this study, transformational leadership has a positive effect on innovative behavior, while contextual ambidexterity has a mediating effect on the relationship between transformational leadership and innovative behavior. Meanwhile, organization systems (formalization) and resource characteristics (resource dependence) in organizational systems have a moderating effect on the relationship between contextual ambidexterity and innovative behavior, where the higher is the degree of formalization and resource dependence in organizational systems, the weaker is the positive effect of contextual ambidexterity on innovative behavior. Finally, this study provides managerial implications, theoretical contributions, suggestions, as well as research limitations.
