Is your Agile dashboard == Business dashboard?

Agile dashboards include Burn down charts (product\release\iteration), team velocity charts, backlog items (product\iteration) = Agile denominators

Business dashboards have managers measuring the schedule, resources, quality.. ; CXO's measuring the ROI\ ROCE\... ; and the business analysts have the Quick Ratios \ quarterly stock price\ EPS expectations to ponder = Business (Economic) denominators

But do we measure and communicate the relationship between the agile denominators and the economic denominators? Can you say that if my project agile denominators are high (low), my organization economic denominators are high (low)?

Or is the agile denominator dashboard only for the masses (teams executing projects) and the 'sacred' economic denominator dashboard for the management? more
