Yep, you are right to some extent. At some organizations where I've worked, agile was mostly a matter of parading and show off by the managers. They used to call us devs for a stand up scrum call but hardly anything happened in those except people standing up! Agile had also become a political tool in some projects for some team members to wage proxy wars with others.

On the other hand, the orgs I worked where waterfall was practiced, they did it diligently and honestly and never failed to disappoint the client. Maybe, that's a bias from where I'm looking at things.


It is. Place blame where it belongs, the people. Delivering with agility means you are delivering value constantly. If that's not happening, it doesn't matter how many stand-ups you have.
However, if you think that TDD, BDD, DDD, & CDD have no value, I would challenge you to study your craft. Even in a waterfall project, those should be happening.
