Amen to that as well. In the company where I used it last, I am certain it was not implemented properly. By having daily meetings, with the manager in them, you had to say daily, of course what you did yesterday, to put in backlog, and what you planned on doing that day. He called it "visibility," or "transperency." I called it micromanaging gone wild." You could nto innovate, go beyond your position, use discretion, or grow your position as a professional. It was all meted out in the Agile Scrum process.
Never again
