The name red bead is a metaphor for the problems that we experience every day in our life. The world is a never ending supply of problems. You get up in the morning and solve the problems of the day. Solve one problem and more problems appear. It is the way of the world. Created in 1982 for the world famous consultant Dr. W. Edwards Deming who was "the man who taught the Japanese, America and many other countries about quality".
