Abstract: In this research paper, we discuss how two distinct network structures influence exploration and exploitation and therefore influence the potential of achieving competitive advantage. In particular, we discuss three pairs of capabilities and how they affect exploration and exploitation in a traditional network structure compared to a lead factory concept. We conclude that the lead factory concept has the higher potential of generating competitive advantage through exploration and exploitation than the traditional network structure.
