About the N6A '6 on 6' Program:
N6A created the '6 on 6' program to help determine the most influential stories that defined 2013 across categories relevant to the industries that N6A services and has expertise, including technology, B2B, energy, consumer goods, finance, and publishing. As part of the program, N6A identified a list of several stories that captured headlines and were influential to each category over the past year. N6A then polled a group of business executives, media influencers, well-respected analysts and pundits with expertise across each category, and asked them to rank the top six stories in order of influence. To qualify as a panelist, each individual was deemed impartial to the companies listed within each category he/she participated in. The panelist could not be employed by, or compete with, a company that is indexed as one of the top stories in a category. The results of the rankings are representative of the average of the total sum of votes from each participant.
