The Gartner Executive Advisory Board (EAB) is an exclusive group of the most influential global operations executives from the world’s leading companies. The purpose of the EAB is to develop, promote and progress the discipline of supply chain management, encouraging both current and future leaders within the profession to make a greater impact not only on the organizations they work for but on our wider society.

In practice, the EAB helps to direct the research agenda of the Gartner community, and advises on themes, content and speakers for Gartner’s signature peer-led events. The EAB additionally provides oversight on key strategic initiatives and development plans.
