- The Senior Principal will be responsible for managing researchers who are investigating, analyzing and writing on critical issues facing senior Supply Chain executives in leading global corporations.


- It involves working with a team on a wide range of written deliverables that require (but not limited to) qualitative research methods - interview CXOs at leading global corporations, conduct wide-ranging secondary literature searches, and synthesize information to elicit key insights - to help organizations transform the way they operate.

What you will do :

- Learn and execute Gartner's proven methodology for conducting world-class research that helps identify best practice solutions to many of today's biggest business challenges.

- Manage a research team through Gartner's proprietary research process including hypothesis generation, primary and secondary research, and root cause analysis to identify best-in-class solutions.
