          For some reason I can't see the underlying data to verify the precise information you are working with, but I think I get what you are asking based on what I can see in the calculated fields.


          The way to calculate the solution is to change the calculation you have for [Employee Count] to be:

          {INCLUDE [IS PS No.]: COUNTD([Personnel Number])}

          This causes the COUNTD function to be run for each unique value in the dimension [IS PS No.].  The COUNTD function therefore aggregates the count of unique [Personnel Number] values (i.e. employees) for each unique immediate supervisor.


          The resulting calculation may be fed to the MIN, MEDIAN and MAX functions to obtain the values you seek.


          Making that change to the calculation of [Employee Count] breaks the [Average Span] calculation, but you can get this back by changing the [IS Count] calculation to aggregate over a dimension which you wish to report by group, but you don't need either of those calculations to get the MIN, MEDIAN or MAX values for the complete data set or for groupings based on other dimensions.


          Hope that helps.
