Its main difference from our traditional award “Solid Signs” is that here the best top manager was chosen not by the editorial office, but nominees themselves. Eight overdogs were determined in machine building industry. Each of them received an electronic link to the voting, and they had to choose three best leaders in their opinion. Three points were awarded for the first place, two points - for the second and one - for the third place. Then of the votes were summed up and the winner was picked. According to colleagues, Sergey Popov was the best in the “Machine building” industry. The majority of the votes was given to him.

The winners were awarded with diplomas and certificates for publication in “Kommersant-Prikamye” newspaper.
