This Emmy-winning reality series utilizes hidden cameras to provide an authentic view of executives' journeys as they are immersed in the day-to-day operations of their organizations. In the process of this undercover mission, they learn of the perceptions about their companies, the spirit of their work forces and -- maybe -- something about themselves as well.
