Abstract : Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, a previously financially sound organization with the reputation as one of the country's major manufacturers of both military and civilian aircraft, by 1971 had amassed debts of over $700 million and claimed that it faced bankruptcy unless the Federal government would provide loan guarantees to its creditors who had refused further credit extensions. A series of case studies, intended for use in the Management curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School, traces the decline of Lockheed through 1971. Major projects which contributed to this decline, are highlighted. All cases were prepared from published materials. (Modified author abstract)
