Re: PLS Algorithm vs PLSc Algorithm LVscores issue

Hello, Many thanks for discussing this important topic. As PLS estimates composites, which themselves, according to a group of researchers, can be reflective or formative [see Sarstedt et al (2016)], does the factor indeterminacy issue exist for reflective composites? Another group of PLS researcher...

Re: COMPOSITES vs COMMON FACTORS, MICOM?

Hi All,

Please read the following paper, which I found to be very helpful:
Sarstedt, M., Hair, J. F., Ringle, C. M., Thiele, K. O., & Gudergan, S. P. (2016). Estimation issues with PLS and CBSEM: Where the bias lies!. Journal of Business Research, 69(10), 3998-4010.

Hayes index of moderated mediation

Hello, I have one question about testing moderated mediation analysis using Hayes (2015) index. The 2nd edition of Hair et al. PLS book recommended this method when testing moderated mediation relationships. However, they did not provide clear guidelines on how to do this in PLS. I was wondering wha...

Re: Mixed higher order constructs

Dear Prof. Ringle, Many thanks for your response. 2. The formative second order construct (note: this construct consists of both reflective and formative first order constructs). @2: I never used mixed models and there is no standard solution; Mode A I understand that Mode A might be suitable for my...

The two stage approach (single-item first order constructs)

Dear All, I have one question related to using the two stage approach to estimate a second order construct. I have a second order exogenous formative construct that have 6 first order constructs. Two first order constructs are formative and one is reflective. The remaining three first order construc...

Re: Mixed higher order constructs

Dear MJ, Many thanks for your response. I agree with you that there is no definitive answer. Based on my reading, I would advise using the two-stage estimation approach for both situations (i.e., formative-formative, and mixed higher order constructs). For the first stage, I would use Mode A for for...

Re: New rules for keeping formative indicators

Dear Dr. Becker, Many thanks for your valuable answers and responses. Let me clarify my question. 1. There are many examples in the literature who assessed the influence of each of the formative indicators on the final endogenous construct by multiplying the formative item weight (e.g., PC1 weight) ...

Re: What about new developed constructs in PLS?

Dear Dr. Becker, Many thanks for your valuable answers. I really appreciate your assistance. All answers were very clear. However, I did not grasp the idea behind your question your final point: How, do you know that your construct is not multi-dimensional? Strong theory and face-validity. Those are...

New rules for keeping formative indicators

Dear SmartPLS users and developers, Hope you are doing well. Can you comment and give answers to the points below. 1. Hair et al. (2013) and Cenfetelli and Bassellier (2009) proposed a rule regarding keeping formative indicators, which states that formative indicators with insignificant weights can ...
