The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between ambidexterity in the context of in-novation strategies, generative learning, innovative firm performance and the role of the transforma-tional leadership to answer the question "how does ambidexterity affect organizational perform-ance?" Data analyzed in this study were collected via questionnaires from mid and top –level manag-ers (n=224) working at manufacturing organizations operating in different industries in Marmara Area, a major industrial region of Turkey. Our research model emphasizes associations among inno-vation strategies, ambidexterity, learning, innovative firm performance and leadership as a modera-tor. Our study provides compelling evidence for future work to gain further insight into ambidexterity and learning-related and leadership related organizational processes and includes several implica-tions for management practice and future research. It was found that ambidexterity and generative learning affect innovative firm performance positively. This study further examines the existence of the moderating effect of transformational leadership on generative learning and its impact on perform-ance. Our findings reveal that, ambidexterity and generative learning are found to be significantly associated with innovative firm performance and transformational leadership fully moderates the re-lationship between explorative innovation strategy and generative learning. This empirical study pro-vides a new approach to understand the mechanism between ambidexterity and innovative firm per-formance considering the organizational learning process and the moderating leadership behaviors
