Ranked Member Guides: Chain of Command.
Version: 1.0  ●  Last Updated Jan 01, 2013

What is a Chain of Command?

In a League of KMB Clan, the chain of command is the line of authority and responsibility along which orders are passed within a Unit and between different Party's.

- Orders are passed down the chain of command, from a higher-ranked member, such as the
  Clan Captain, to a Division Captain who either perform the order personally or pass it down the
  chain as appropriate, until it is received by those expected to perform it.

  • Who gives orders to who?

In general, ranked-members only give orders only to those directly below them in the chain of command and receive orders only from those directly above them.

- A ranked-member who has difficulty performing a duty or order, and appeals for relief directly to
  an officer above his immediate commander in the chain of command is likely to be disciplined for
  not observing the chain of command.

- Similarly, an officer is usually expected to give orders only to his or her direct subordinate, even
  if it is just to pass an order down to another ranked-member lower in the chain of command than
  said subordinate.

  • Defined command.

A higher rank alone does not entitle a high-ranking member to give commands to just anyone of a lower rank.

- For example, the Party Leader of "Party 1" does not directly command Crew Leaders of "Party
  2", and is generally expected to approach the Party Leader of "Party 2" if he/she requires action
  by Crew Leaders of that Party.

- The chain of command means that individual members take orders from only one superior and
  only give orders to a defined group of members immediately below them.

  • Unusual circumstance.

If the Party Leader of "Party 1" does give orders directly to an Crew Leader of "Party 2", it would be considered highly unusual (a misstep, or extraordinary circumstances, such as a lack of time or inability to confer with the Party Leader in command of "Party 2") as Party Leader 1 would be seen as subverting the authority of the Party Leader of "Party 2".

- Depending on the situation, the Official being ordered may choose to carry out the order
  anyway, or advise that it has to be cleared with his or her own Party Leader first, which in this
  example would be with Party Leader "2".

- Refusal to carry out an order is almost always considered insubordination, the only exception
  usually allowed is if the order itself is illegal (i.e., the person carrying out the order would be
  committing an illegal act).
