In their effort to better understand consumer behavior, marketing researchers often analyze relationships between latent variables, measured by sets of observed variables. Partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) has become a popular tool for analyzing such relationships. Particularly the availability of SmartPLS, a comprehensive software program with an intuitive graphical user interface, helped popularize the method. We review the latest version of SmartPLS and discuss its…

Tips to use partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) in knowledge management

It is shown that over the past three years, a significant amount of KM works has empirically used PLS-SEM, and some common misconceptions among KM researchers occurred mainly related to the reasons for using PLS to estimate complex cause-effect relationship models.

Consistent Partial Least Squares Path Modeling

This paper introduces a vital extension of PLS: consistent PLS (PLSc), which provides a correction for estimates when PLS is applied to reflective constructs: the path coefficients, inter-construct correlations, and indicator loadings become consistent.

Addressing Endogeneity in International Marketing Applications of Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling

This study introduces a systematic procedure that translates control variables, instrumental variables, and Gaussian copulas into a PLS-SEM framework and illustrates the procedure's efficacy by means of empirical data and offers recommendations to guide international marketing researchers on how to effectively address endogeneity concerns in their PLS -SEM analyses.
