Prelude event of the PLS 2022 conference
Necessity thinking is relevant in many fields of research reflected in formulations such as "A is a necessary condition for B", "B requires A" and alike. Necessary condition analysis (NCA) offers a tool to identify these necessary conditions, and therewith can complement a traditional PLS-SEM model by identifying the must have factors relevant for an outcome to materialize.
This workshop provides an introduction to NCA: We focus on the foundations of the method and its application in research. Furthermore, we introduce the combined use of PLS-SEM with NCA including relevant guidelines, an illustrative example, and insights into sources to practically apply both methods.
