common method variance

Hi everybody,

I am struggling with common method variance. Is there any practicable, recommendable way to assess it (next to Harmans one factor test)? Any advice is highly welcome.

Regards
Juliane

A more recent version of our PLS CMV paper can be found at

http://www.hut.fi/u/mronkko/PLSCMV.pdf

It contains a better explanation on how to use our method.

This paper will be presented in ICIS 2010 MISQ Workshop and then will be submitted to journal.

This method does not really work at all. There is a paper forthcoming in MISQ that actually tests this method with simulated data with known amount of method variance and concludes that the Liang et al approach should not be used.
