Irrespective of what practice of software or school of thought of software development you come from, delivering quality software has always been at the center of your and your team’s day to day work life, as product/software quality determines Customer Satisfaction. And what defines quality software is the one with minimum bugs and the one that’s delivered on time. If your product/software did not meet either of the criteria, quality had failed.
