These principles include: Quality begins with the requirements; Quality has many dimensions; Customer involvement is the greatest determinant of software quality; Both internal and external quality are important; Developer discretion has a great influence on quality; Quality must be a conscious project priority; You can pay now, or you can pay a lot more later; Iteration is a key to software quality; Long-term productivity is the result of high quality; If you don't design for quality, you won't get it.
