Abstract

Partial least square structural equation modeling was widely known and used among business and management researchers. The new software update of smartPLS with more user friendly package could help a researcher to achieve their objectives in research. This paper aims to design a higher order construct (HOC) in partial least square structural equation model (PLS-SEM) using financial ratios. In order to provide the full understanding for other researchers, the authors conducted this analysis with a real case study. Variables under study were entrepreneur orientation (EO), human resource management (HRM), market orientation (MO), information technology (ICT), financial ratios (FR) and SME performance based on growth revenues. A survey questionnaire was used in data collection in two areas: Selangor and Sabah. PLS algorithm and bootstrapping procedures were performed for model’s significance and relevance. The results obtained from the analyses, however had indicated that financial ratios had negative relationships towards revenual growth of SME performance. Meanwhile, human resource management and market orientation showed significant influence with positive relationships. Thus, this paper would help SME’s owners to consider a proper financial reporting in their future business endeavours.
