Ladies and gentlemen, these guys need no introdution. Each year we are treated to a new set of rankings that gets everyone talking. Yes, it's the infamous Black Book of Outsourcing's top advisors and consultants guide! Forget your sourcing advisors, forget research reports, forget client references – these guys will simply tell you how it is with their magical rankings.
You have to hand it to them, they never fail to stir up emotions, excite some small outsourcing vendor, or boutique advisor… when it comes to the Black Book, anyone can get in on the game. This year we're treated to several one-man bands, outsourcing vendors posing as "independent advisors", and some firms who don't even do what their category states… can you guess some of them?
