Development teams often are pushed by the business to deliver new functionality as soon as possible to keep ahead of the competition. Teams feel responsible and communicate to the business a certain amount of functionality can be realized that adheres to certain quality standards. In practice, unfortunately, there are times when this is overruled by the business at the expense of quality, i.e.: more functionality, less quality and more technical debt. As a consequence, bad performance, bugs and service outage could occur. This builds up to a point where end users are affected, and the business cannot ignore these issues anymore.
