Business executives are an important part of agile, as it is their job to define what value is for a particular organization. They point out the overall business strategy, and business value is simply something that contributes to this. However, these leaders are too busy to play the part of the product owner. Even if they were not that occupied, it doesn't seem like a good use of management time. By using Balanced Scorecard to define and follow up the IT strategy, the business executive can say "what" without saying "how", get continuous feedback and adjust the course when necessary.
