Find a way to expose him to the essential and relevant truths and you won't have to sell it - he'll buy it.

I need a help from you. I have a huge challenge and was wondering what would be your approach.
I need to sell the Scrum framework to a 52 years old director of a huge company who knows the framework superficially and not entirely agree with it. We have a big project, divided into several large modules. This man always imposes ScrumBut into each module of the project which, of course, cannot make their deliveries on time.
This man likes to have fixed dates ahead. He thinks the Scrum does not cause people to deliver the entire sprint "done". There is always a balance of work per sprint "undone" and no "punishment" for this fact. He also likes to control what each person is doing, in detail.
How would you sell Scrum to this man? Recalling that he is a director who is unlikely to change his mind overnight.
Thank you all!
