When making the time-to-market vs. quality tradeoff, more often than not, quality suffers. For the customer, dealing with defective software is time consuming, frustrating, and inefficient. For the producer, defective software is costly. Defects can be expensive to fix, and they increase support costs and lower profits by diverting resources from new product development (which generates revenue) to bug-fix releases (which typically do not generate revenue).
Having an acceptable product that is months late and, as a result, does not sell is just as bad as releasing a less-than-quality product on time. The question is: "Can a reasonable balance between meeting both time-to-market and quality goals be achieved?"
