A comparative analysis of multivariate approaches for data analysis in management sciences

Rizwan Raheem Ahmed, Dalia Streimikiene, Justas Streimikis, Indre Siksnelyte-Butkiene

The researchers use the SEM-based multivariate approach to analyze the data in different fields, including management sciences and economics. Partial least square structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) and covariance-based structural equation modeling (CB-SEM) are powerful data analysis techniques. This paper aims to compare both models, their efficiencies and deficiencies, methodologies, procedures, and how to employ the models. The outcomes of this paper exhibited that the PLS-SEM is a…
