Industry NAICS codes
A current priority in our managerial background analysis tool is associating industry area with associated NAICS codes. For example, when a manager describes the companies that they have worked for, often there is a description of the firm and its industry; this information has applications in understanding how industries are characterized and how these characterizations evolve over time.
The key challenge in working with this information is the number of possible industries that are discussed: while some are common (such as 'pharmaceutical firms'), others are much less common - often idiosyncratic to a particular manager. Indeed, overall we have 100,000's of descriptions that we are attempting to systematically categorize with a high degree of accuracy.
Preview expected later in 2018/early 2019.
We are nearing completion of our committee activities tool, with previews of the textual structures expected shortly, and the documentation and beta availability expected to roll-out shortly after. If you are a current (or potential) subscriber please contact support to be the first to hear of initial availability.
Work is on-going on our performance evaluations tools - we look forward to sharing previews of the textual structures in due course.
