Importance of qulaity in Agile world

Software which doesn’t works or which is full of bugs is of no value, whether you develop your code using waterfall or agile it doesn’t matter. One of the fundamental principles of agile world confirms this “Working software over comprehensive documentation”. Agile follows the principle of satisfying the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. This fundamental guideline/principle itself emphasizes the importance of the quality. If I talk in scrum terms all the stakeholders are responsible of quality. The Product Owner creates the story, gets the necessary feedback from customers and discusses the acceptance criteria with the team. When the team starts working on these stories, all these quality/acceptance criteria are verified within the sprint (and after the sprint by the customer). Any deviation is noted at the earliest and necessary actions taken.
