3. Classify managers

Next, ABC Business must classify its managers. It must also calculate their reporting level to the CEO.

Excluding the CEO, the five other members of the executive management team are KMPs. Each of them is the head of one business unit. In ABC Business, 1 KMP is more senior than the CEO and reports to someone overseas.

Please note that in other organisations, KMPs may include a wider range of managers and not only the executive management team.
