RQ: How does a person who experiences toxic leadership outside the organization affect the individual’s efficiency and cost-benefit within an organization?
This case assignment focuses on understanding and synthesizing the use of multidimensional constructs (latent variables) and/or EFA in published research in your field.
Please reflect on your selected research direction and find (using Web of Science or ProQuest for example) three papers (ideally from top-ranked journals) that used multi-item constructs and exploratory factor analysis. Read these papers and reflect on the readings assigned for this week. Address the following points in a synthesized set of paragraphs.
What are the measured multi-item constructs/ latent variables? Give example items or the full scales
Why did the authors need to use EFA?
Comment on the validity of these constructs
Could the authors do a better job finding and measuring these constructs?
Please organize your paper in a scholarly way. Add section titles when necessary. Explain your logic and when appropriate, use external sources and use proper citations.
