Breaking projects into small milestones ddn't originate with agile, we were already doing that in 1989.

But the whole idea of the sprint, including the name itself, is to keep up the pressure so people are constantly behind and easily coerced into working 60-80 hours a week. And insult is added to injury with numerous meetings that are part of every sprint.

"Let's spend the next four hours discussing what we learned in the last two weeks about temwork." I'd need psychotherapy after that.
