Accenture IT Strategy

#1 Accenture IT Strategy
16/07/2013 06:58


Hello all

Is there anyone with an insider view of Accenture's IT Strategy group? Could you pls share you experience with kind of projects, growth within group, culture etc.? I am exploring a role with the group at mid-level (Mgr / Sr. Mgr) position.

Apart from regular marketing stuff, what would you think is real differentiator for Accenture? Positives / negatives, focus areas...etc. Any thoughts pls?

Thanks, Tim

Accenture is the best in IT Strategy space.

Differentiator would be the end-to-end capability that accenture has. Speak with more senior people. I just entered the team and started enjoying the work

I think most people would recognise accentures strength in brainwashing new hires.

brainwashing is key..either employees or clients..!

on a serious note : Accenture is really strong in terms of end to end strategy as we just dont show complex models and nice PPTs, we actually have to implement the strategy as well..if you compare it with some of the other pure strategy houses, where in they only provide consulting/roadmaps and leave it to someone else to deliver on their promises, clients want someone who can promise and then also help deliver it..

btw, I am talking abt IT strategy here...not sure about other areas..

Regarded as a bit of a joke by those who actually do know something about technology and how to implement it, but looked down upon by those who regard themselves as real management consultants. Neither fish nor fowl if you see what I mean.

Caveat - I have never worked for Accenture but have worked alongside them on several projects.

Accenture is big and as a result you will find good and bad consultants. I often find that high-level IT strategy work is done by another advisory consultancy and Accenture are used for the implementation phase - but there is often overlap. For example, I was brought on board a big project because the Accenture guys were a bit too techie and couldn't see the wood for the trees. Most of the Accenture IT strategy consultants I have worked with have been good but the senior executives were typically a bunch of tw*ts (insert the appropriate letter).

Is it possible to move from Accenture IT Strategy group to Accenture Strategy group. Has anybody done that before. ?

Their core training, methodology and the work they do seem to be similar except that one is focused on IT and the other on the Business as a whole

In order to do this you will need sponsorship from the DTE you wish to join and approval from the one you need. If you are a technology consultant I think you will need to do some sort of interview. In theory if your skills are transferable and you have the backing from the department you wish to join then it is fine..however the reality may make this prove to be a bit more difficult
