I fully agree. Instead of writing up stuff myself - a link: Why ďAgileĒ and especially Scrum are terrible which is a nice read.

TOC excerpt:

Specific flaws of ďAgileĒ and Scrum
  1. Business-driven engineering
  2. Terminal juniority
  3. Itís stupidly, dangerously short-term
  4. It has no regard for career coherency
  5. Its purpose is to identify low performers, but it has an unacceptably false positive rate
  6. The Whisky Googles Effect
  7. Itís dishonestly sold

tl;dr:

Agile is a tool and mindset which doesn't foster individual or collective joy in business, but to extort maximum profit from programmers in the name of effectiveness, without regard for the very foundations of the latter: individual strenghts, weaknesses, handicaps, genius; and it invades privacy, which is a requirement to grow.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
