Not meeting your commitments will cause others to lose confidence in you. Whether you are a CEO making promises to the board or the one responsible for the software development organization, keeping the confidence of those you report to and even those that report to you is crucial to be an effective leader.
Development delays typically hit companies twice. The first punch comes from the added expense that results from working on the software longer than expected. The second, and less visible, blow comes from the missing benefit (typically revenue) that the software would have produced if it was ready on time.
Shortcuts are often taken to meet a software delivery date. These shortcuts often come in the form of less testing. However, sometimes shortcuts are made that lead to more technical debt. Whether the effect is immediate or down the road, your software quality and user experience will suffer from development shortcuts.
