Firm exploratory and exploitative behavior implies the temporal dimension. This paper comes to the conclusions as follows:firstly, "time" is at the core of the two paradigms of firm ambidextrous behavior, namely ambidexterity and punctuated equilibrium; secondly, the core dispute of these two paradigms lies in the differences of "temporal assumption"and "the temporal model of the behavior", thereby leading to their different views towards related topics; thirdly, more comprehensive types of firm ambidextrous behavior should transcend the paradigms of ambidexterity and punctuated equilibrium, which could be embraced by the research topic of "sequence of ambidextrous behavior", including the research of temporal attributes of single behavior, ambidextrous behavior and appropriate theoretical explanation. These findings broaden the theoretical perspectives of firm ambidextrous behavior research, make up the inadequacy of two paradigms aforementioned on "time" dimension, and try to explore the new thought and directions of ambidextrous behavior research.
