...A collinearity assessment showed no significant levels of collinearity between any sets of predicting variables (with variance inflation factor [VIF] falling between tolerance range .20 and 5.0) (Hair et al. 2014)....
...Conversely, PLS-SEM estimates model parameters in a way that maximizes the variance explained in endogenous variables and is preferred for research aimed at theory development and prediction (Hair et al. 2014, p. 14)....
...CB-SEM uses a maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) procedure to estimate model coefficients “so that the discrepancy between the estimated and sample covariance matrices is minimized” (Hair et al. 2014, p. 27)....
...The latent variables in the current model all have reflective measurements: indicators which predict one particular construct and which are highly correlated to one another and represent the effects of the latent construct (Hair et al. 2014, p. 43)....

...PLS path modeling is also recommended over CBSEM for testing complex models with many latent variables (Henseler, Ringle, and Sinkovics 2009)....
...Then we performed a second bootstrapping analysis, specifying 5,000 subsamples and a 95% significance level, to obtain each path coefficient’s standard error and p value (Henseler, Ringle, and Sinkovics 2009) (Table 3)....
