The Top 100: Anxious for opportunities

Anxiety and the Top 100 go hand in hand. We frequently get calls from companies
anxious to learn their ranking. For the record, we don't tell them before the issue
is published.

This year, the market itself seems anxious.
At the very least, the market is in a period of transition
as the Bush administration winds down. No one
knows who will head the next administration and what
new priorities will come forward.

The normal uncertainties and anxieties of a transition
year are compounded by a weak economy
and budget deficits.

For the companies on the Top 100, the year is
fraught with risk and opportunity.

Politics and how it affects business and emerging
opportunities are very much on people's minds.
Flexibility and partnership are even more important
today because there are so many unknowns at
work.

You can read about what the companies are doing in our feature stories and
the profiles of the top 20 companies.
On our Web site, you'll find more Top 100 features, and I'll be presenting an
e-seminar May 22.
Each year, we rely on the skills and expertise of market research firm
FedSources, which crunches the data for us. I want to thank their analysts for
their hard work.
