Actually, CEO does not care whether am I a SM or not. He thinks that as you say I am a manager and doing a commitment as a CTO which are responsible for delivering the product in time. The actual problem with this is that we have no release plan. We have stories grouped by themes. And we are delivering some of them in two weeks, and some of them in two months according to the size of the stories.
I think the only solution is to create a release plan with them (CEO+PO+SM). And then, w/PO+SM+team.

PO is inside our company. He's responsible for a company of our companies' group. And I am a CTO who is pilotting a project for PO's company w/a new team.
