18 We know how many people we have in each of our levels/jobs right now. We record that number in the leftmost column labeled as “Initial Level.” (NOTE: It’s already done for you here). We look at our company records and make our best guess as to what percentage of employees (EEs) move to another level or out of the company (exit) in the near future.

Note that the number of EEs in these five cells comprising a row must sum to the number present of the level in step one. That is, an EE cannot simply disappear; they must be in either Level 1-4 or have exited. So, for example, the number of employees in the Level 1 row absolutely must sum to 50....
