A few good pints

The few good points he has made are not sufficient to result in the summary conclusions.

Scrums suck, no doubt about it. I have yet to see a scrum that is not a waste of time.

Test driven development as used in most companies does so too because in most cases developers write tests to test a piece of code and NOT THE FAILURE CONDITION BEHAVIOUR. However test driven development does not suck as a general rule - it is doing it wrong which sucks.

Other elements of agile - retrospectives, etc are quite useful when done properly.
