Gartner Business Rotational Development Program - The opportunity:
The 3 year Gartner Business Rotational Development (BRD) program provides a unique opportunity for a small number of highly talented individuals to gain exposure to several business functions. BRDs rotate through assignments as part of teams capturing many of Gartner’s most important business opportunities. BRDs are expected to develop skills and demonstrate increasing independence in each assignment. Through challenging rotations, BRDs will gain exposure to product management and product marketing, corporate and business unit strategy, product development, operational efficiency and effectiveness, and other business functions. Rotating through varied assignments gives BRDs a deep understanding of the interdependencies across several functions. BRDs also gain exposure to several senior business leaders who have diverse varied backgrounds and styles. As a result of this program, BRDs will develop a network of contacts and relationships throughout the organization.
