|Title:||Using hierarchical item clustering to establish the dimensionality of the multifactor leadership questionnaire||Contributor(s):||Muchiri, Michael K (author); Cooksey, Ray W (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8824||Abstract:||This paper illustrates some benefits of using hierarchical item clustering (ICLUST) as an alternative analytical procedure for establishing the dimensionality and homogeneity of the multifactor leadership questionnaire, a scale widely used for measuring leadership behaviours. We used ICLUST analysis to analyse data from 177 local councils' employees. Current findings suggest that ICLUST analysis established first-order clusters of the leadership research construct that had equivalent comparisons to factors found through confirmatory factor analysis and reported in extant literature. Theoretical and practical implications for using ICLUST are discussed.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) 24th Annual Conference: Managing for Unknowable Futures, Adelaide, Australia, 6th - 10th December, 2010||Conference Details:||Australian New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) 24th Annual Conference: Managing for Unknowable Futures, Adelaide, Australia, 6th - 10th December, 2010||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 24th Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference||Publisher:||ANZAM: Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management||Place of Publication:||Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||150311 Organisational Behaviour||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||910402 Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 170
