About Accenture Research
Accenture Researchers is a team of 250 researchers based in 23 countries providing insights and analysis to Accenture and its clients throughout the world. Accenture Research translates into continual opportunities to expand on what you can do. Our researchers come together from a wide variety of skills and backgrounds to create talented teams of problem-solvers. Working closely with the senior executives in each of the industries, geographies and businesses, our work is split into three main areas:
· Developing Thought Leadership: Accenture Research’s role in the overall Accenture Innovation Architecture is to identify and anticipate game-changing business, market and technology trends through provocative thought leadership. These projects can be broad, involving multiple senior stakeholders and leading to a series of external publications and assets for diagnosing client performance. Or they can be small, focused on a certain niche topic, geography or industry segment.
· Working on client engagements: A growing portion of our work is on client engagements where we work with the consulting practice to provide deep research and industry expertise. Typical work with our clients might be to project future trends and their likely impact on individual clients at the intersection of digital and strategy, or to benchmark a capability or function to provide best practices in an industry.
· New business opportunities: Helping Accenture understand markets and companies and identifying ways in which we can help clients become high-performance businesses and public services. A typical analysis might be a strategic diagnostic of a company, an overview of market trends or a brief on digital disruption in one industry.
Successful research requires people who not only have strong research skills but who also have a client-focused mentality and a confident personal style. Successful researchers build deep relationships with their peers and senior executives inside Accenture and with a wide network of peers and experts on the outside.
