Six Sigma at NBC Universal

The 30 Rock Six Sigma reference got me thinking about Six Sigma at NBC Universal… not much searching later I found a Six Sigma educational video produced by the quality team at NBCU and narrated by Linda Hildebrandt, a Master Black Belt on the quality team.

The self-made video is professional quality (would you expect anything less from Hollywood?) and introduces us to the quality team at NBCU. Linda then walks us through the Six Sigma basics. The beauty of this video is in the clips from the NBC show The Office that are seamlessly edited in, giving the video way more humor that you’d expect from a Six Sigma educational video.

Watch the video to learn a little about Six Sigma at NBC, but more importantly, watch it for a good laugh.

UPDATE: The video has been removed from YouTube and no longer available. It was good while it lasted.

    The Six Sigma workshops in the early 2000’s were comical at NBC. They took a bunch of editorial and technical people and demanded that they participate in pointless workshops that related more to manufacturing than media. It was clear that the people running the show didn’t really understand television. If anything, it was known more for being an attempt to cut corners and push things to the brink of failure, rather than seeking true quality. GE… bringing good things to life.
