The article presents an annual list of Great Britain's top 50 information technology (IT) training companies, based on the providers' revenues for 2002. Ten companies in 2002's ranking have either been acquired or merged. However, ten other companies have been added to the list. And it's this development that should stop training buyers and suppliers collectively commiserating about the supposedly parlous state of their industry. Mature industries are characterised by sophisticated buyers who understand how to add value to their organisations, and suppliers that play to their strengths and see opportunities for continued growth.
