I stopped reading with your endorsement of daily standup and scrum. Probably 80% of meetings are a complete waste of time, when the entire group is required to be present that rises to nearly 100%.

Communication, yes. Design discussions, yes. Status updates should be in email because anything requiring a rush-hour commute is simply sadistic.

And anyone so weak at time management as to require a junk fad like scrum should go into another line of work.
