Series Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE's pioneering use of the "case study" approach to business documents high level decisions as they are taking place in the executive boardrooms. ENTERPRISE deliberately shows decision making processes as they occur. Business is treated as a human endeavor rather than an economic phenomenon. It goes beyond the statistics and charts to show real people making critical decisions and then bearing the consequences. ENTERPRISE benefits from the expertise of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration (as Harvard professors act as advisors to each program.)

Program Description

HERALDED AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY AS THE BRIGHT FUTURE OF AIR TRANSPORTATION, THE BLIMP QUICKLY FAILED TO FULFILL THAT PROMISE. NOW, DECADES LATER, THE NAVY HAS IDENTIFIED NEW MILITARY USES FOR THOSE AIRSHIPS AND ONCE AGAIN THEY ARE BECOMING THE OBJECT OF GREAT ATTENTION. THIS FOCUSES ON THE REINVENTION OF ZEPPELIN TECHNOLOGY AND THE COMPLETION THAT THE RENEWED INTEREST IN THEM HAS PROMPTED BETWEEN TWO LEADING MANUFACTURERS.
