[PLS-SEM-2022-01] Partial Least Squares - Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) Using R

Present a workshop on

Partial Least Squares - Structural Equation Modelling (Pls-Sem) Using R

Dates: May 24-29, 2022

About the Workshop

The workshop will be held on May 24-29, 2022 via online medium (through Zoom). The workshop sessions are scheduled from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm on the workshop dates. Prior knowledge of R Software or programming is not required. One complete session will be devoted in making participants understand the working of R and R Studio.

Focus of the Workshop

PLS-SEM also referred to as partial least squares path modeling is a non-parametric approach to structural equation modelling which has witnessed an increasing usage in social science research. It has gained popularity due to its unique peculiarity in developing theory or propose some insightful extension to a theory. It is a statistical data analysis methodology that exists at the intersection of Regression Models, Structural Equation Models, and Multiple Table Analysis methods. PLS SEM is designed to take care of both reflective and formative constructs unlike CB-SEM which is curated to work with reflective constructs only. It works equally well with non-normally distributed data and is tailored to handle small sample sizes as opposed to covariance based structural equation modelling which typically uses large sample size to estimate model parameters (Hair et al., 2018).

Learning Objectives

1. Building models in research based on theoretical foundations

2. Understand the application of structural equation modelling using partial least squares algorithm in social science research

3. Measurement issues (reliability and validity) in latent constructs

4. Understanding Mediation, Moderation and Multigroup Analysis

5. Hands on practice with R and R Studio

6. Exposure to numerous packages in R Studio for

7. Exposure to model robustness checks in partial least squares approach

8. Understand alternative model testing

Who should attend?

The workshop is tailored to suit the needs of faculty members, research scholars and practitioners working in management research. Researchers who are using surveys for their research work will benefit from this workshop.
