[Authors' original abstract]

Over the past decade, the concept of dynamic capabilities has reached the tops of scholarly interest. This interest can be explained by dynamic capabilities’ impact to competitiveness, effective organizational processes, environmental dynamism, and networking. Notably less is researched the concept of ambidexterity. It is also connected to change management, strategic renewal, adaptation, and growth and gaining competitiveness by combining quite contrary, radical and incremental innovations. Modern literature emphasizes that dynamic capabilities and ambidexterity have related issues. The aim of this paper is to analyze the concepts of dynamic capability and ambidexterity and to set a clear framework for their interdependence.
