My organization would start adopting scrum and I did the PSM recently to get acquainted to it.

I was asked by my manager to present a first hand awareness session to couple of our senior managers.
My organization follows old style and I am sure I will face lots of resistance in that presentation. My ask is.

a) Some good suggestions that I can include to convince that scrum is a better way and also to convince not to modify scrum. ( I was told during a conversation couple of days ago that actual scrum looks like a theory).

b) Do you think it would be a good idea to include methods of agile planning/estimation, release planning for minimum marketable feature etc after couple of iterations(Scrum does not talk about these).

Scrum isn't theory. There are many real-life examples out there - just search "Scrum success".

Please do not take offense Deep, but if your organization is looking to an inexperienced Scrum Master to justify the value and use of Scrum, then unfortunately your company's Agile initiative is doomed from the start.

You need experienced Agile practitioners, preferable Agile coaches, to guide your executive management. The "buy-in" for Scrum should have actually been agreed to by your senior management prior to any training.

Good luck.
