Abstract : Three models with the potential to explain significant organizational research outcomes were proposed and tested. Fify-six organizational scholars were surveyed about one significant and one not-so-significant research project. The findigs identified several reported factors that occurred prior to and durig research projects that were related to research outcomes. The Ambidextrous model, which includes both organic and Mechanistic research characteristics, differentiated significant from not-so-significant research better than the Davis and Antecedents models.
