Discussion on: Sprints/retros are not "agile"

This is all so true. Especially about the ceremonies. It seems like companies just do them because everyone else is doing them. You say: "Why do we have a board?", "What is the purpose of stand up?", "Why do we do what we do?" And it's all blank looks or "Well, we do it because we're doing agile, not waterfall!". There's no understanding of the purpose behind anything so all the value gets lost.
