Partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) has recently received considerable attention in a variety of disciplines, including marketing (Hair et al 2011; Hair et al. 2012a, strategic management (Hair et al. 2012a, and management information systems (Ringle et al. 2012).
The growing application of PLS-SEM is accompanied by a broad range of methodological research that extends the method’s toolbox. Most of the workshop will involve “hands-on” analysis of data using the SmartPLS software. SmartPLS software output diagnostics and proper interpretation of the results will be covered. Potential obstacles and “rules-of-thumb” to ensure appropriate application of the technique will be covered.
Who: Individuals wishing to learn the fundamentals of PLS-SEM and the SmartPLS software.
