    At one factory, each worker was assigned a piece of wood. Each of the four sides was painted a different colour: black, white, yellow and blue. The piece of wood displayed the colour that corresponded to the quality of the worker’s work the previous day: black was bad, blue was so-so, yellow was good, and white was excellent. The daily colour for each worker was logged in a ‘book of colour’.
