From the Paper:

"Maintaining quality is absolutely critical for the success of a team/group as quality is considered to be the measuring stick of a team's success. The complexity of this issue can be gauged from the fact revealed by many researchers that managers today tend to look at quality as doing the task correctly, the first time. This attitude has paved way for enhanced commitment and has also forced the team members to create and sustain values."
