Answer by Ankush Sethi:
Here is one which I personally feel is very interesting so I'm sharing it.
In some places perfection is a habit and not an attitude!
Apparently the American computer giant IBM decided to have some parts manufactured in Japan on a trial basis.
In the specifications, they set a standard that they will accept only three defective piece per 10,000 piece.
When the delivery came to IBM there was a letter accompanying with it.
'We, the Japanese people, had a hard time understanding North American business practices.
But the three defective parts per 10,000 piece have been separately
manufactured and have been included in the consignment in a separate
package mentioned – "Defective pieces as required, not for use."
