Growth (AVE = 0.517; CR = 0.761)[edit | edit source]

Description[edit | edit source]

The authors test the construct validity of indicators of three dimensions of organizational performance, a fundamental construct in strategic management. Based on an examination of reliability, convergent validity, discriminant validity and nomological validity, and on additional analyses, the authors find evidence of four rather than three dimensions of organizational performance: liquidity, profitability, growth, stock market performance.

Items[edit | edit source]

  • Sales growth (0.440)
  • Assets growth (0.638)

Comments[edit | edit source]

The authors did a lot to ensure reliability and validity of their scales. However, the factor loadings are just too low. Also AVE is relatively low.
