In most other categories, vendors listed come from a world-wide pool ranging from top-tier, full-service, large organizations; second-tier, speciality best-of-breed vendors; and small, strategically located vendors.
However, in the Outsourced Sales & Business Development sub-list they are exclusively US based.
I was surprised to see some of the vendors included in the list as, to me, they are effectively provide marketing services rather than pure-play sales outsourcing vendors. And there are certainly a couple of UK-based companies that I would have expected in this list ahead of other US players.
I suspect that this simply illustrates that the sales outsourcing sector is still developing, rather than a reflection of selection criteria.
Having just ordered the latest "black book", it'll be interesting to see whether any UK players have made the cut for 2007.
