We aim to advance understanding about quality management (QM) practices by clarifying how business level strategy conditions the impacts of exploitative and explorative QM practices on performance. We apply partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) to primary and secondary data from a sample of German pharmaceutical firms using SmartPLS 3. When fostering different QM practices, the findings support the need for pharmaceutical firms’ managers to select the right mix of exploitative or explorative QM practices in consideration of their strategic focus. Explorative QM practices are significantly more relevant for firms following a differentiation strategy, whereas exploitative QM practices are significantly more relevant for cost leaders. Furthermore, for strategically ambidextrous firms that follow simultaneously a cost and a differentiation focus, the interplay of the two QM practices matters.
