From: Training and business performance: the mediating role of absorptive capacities

Composite/measures AVE Composite reliability 1. ACAP 2. TCOND 3. ORGP
1. Absorptive capacity (ACAP) 0.66 0.83 0.81 0 0
2. Training conditions (TCOND) 0.67 0.91 0.77 0.82 0
3. Organizational performance (ORGP) 0.81 0.9 0.73 0.53 0.90
Cronbach’s alpha 0.75 0.87 0.78
Mean 5.04 5.32 4.90
Typical deviation 0.91 1.18 1.01
  1. The means were evaluated based on the average scores of the different first-order composites that comprise each of the second-order composites considered. The correlations are those of the second-order composites according to the CFA outputs. The elements in the diagonal are the square root of the AVE
