Therefore, extant customers will impede the implementation of radically new routines, subsequently diminishing routine flexibility. A similar line of argument holds true for other external stakeholders. Following the work of Ghemawat (1991), Rosenbloom and Christensen (1998), and Sull, Tedlow, and Rosenbloom (1997), Hill and Rothaermel explicitly amplify the notion of resource dependence to the “value network of suppliers […] complementary product providers, communities, and so on, to which the firm has made strategic commitment” (2003: 261).

As discontinuous technological changes are connected to high levels of uncertainty and mostly unprofitable in early stages (Anderson & Tushman, 1990), investors are unlikely to provide financial support for investments in discontinuous technologies (Benner, 2007). Moreover, stockholders are unlikely to endorse resource re-allocations from continuous improvement of the established technology to commercialization of the discontinuous technology, as this potentially diminishes the return on their dividends in the short-term.

Finally, formalization does not only refer to structures and processes related to searching for information, interpretation, and decision-making, but to any structures and processes “around which organizations are constructed and through which they operate” (Levitt & March, 1988: 326), thus also affecting the implementation phase. As a consequence, formalization might also exacerbate routine flexibility (Weiss & Ilgen, 1985) by forestalling that implementation of the novel technology is executed in a non-paradigmatic way for which no standards initially exist.
