Saturday Fun: 30 Rock’s 6 Principles of 6 Sigma

My blog has gotten a lot of traffic since Thursday as people search for “30 rock jack welch” after his “acting” appearance on the show and they're finding  this blog post from 2006.

I try to keep things light on the weekends here… I'm posting a picture that the NBC website has from an episode from 2008 or 2009 where Liz and Jack went to a GE Six Sigma event called “Retreat to Move Forward.”
