who is 

Within corporations, an upper manager is the person who  must take responsibility for and is accountable for the  success or failure of their particular operation. In large  corporations, top executives must meet with other top  executives to ensure that operations are being carried out  in accordance with the organization's goals and policies. 

Plant managers, general managers, departmental  managers, and executive officers are all part of the top  executives who formulate the policies and directions of  corporations and agencies. The fundamental objective  that these executives must work towards is to ensure that  their business units make a profit for their shareholders  and owners. General managers and top executives work  to ensure that their organizations meet these objectives  and increase the shareholder's value. 

The scope of high level executive's responsibilities depends  greatly upon the size of the organization. In larger  organizations, their duties may be highly specialized. For  example, they may oversee managers of marketing, sales,  purchasing, finance, personnel, etc. In a small firm. the chief  executive might be responsible for all or a number of these  functions. 

Middle managers, in turn, direct the individual department's  activities within the framework of the organization's overall  plan. With the help of supervisory managers and their staffs,  these managers oversee and motivate their workers to achieve  the department's goals as rapidly as posiible.
