It’s not about predicting the future. It’s about inventing it. Our work—by its very nature—is disrupting industries, reshaping business models and changing lives. Across our business, we ask our people to constantly innovate how they work and think. Pushing boundaries is intrinsic to everything that we do. In an ever-evolving and rapidly-advancing world, everyone at Accenture is working in the new. The best talent comes from everywhere. We collaborate with experts from universities to large technology providers, to nimble start-ups. Our Innovation Architecture enables our clients to become disruptors and continuously innovate—at scale and at speed.
This page showcases examples of how we are utilising Innovation to Lead in the New.
Extended Reality - The end of distance
Extended Reality, including virtual, augmented and mixed reality is the first set of technologies to “relocate” people in time and space, and we are here for it. As immersive experiences spread across industries, the fundamental changes to enterprise and society are clear: the importance of place is disappearing. Through Extended Reality, businesses can tap into expertise in thousands of skills from anywhere in the world.

Celebrate innovation and a world full of opportunities.
From the first signs of automation during the steam power revolution, to the advances in technology and AI that are occurring at pace today, innovation has ignited progress and propelled us through the four industrial revolutions. Advances in digital technology are leading to greater efficiencies and transforming the relationship between human and machine. Traditional orthodoxies are constantly being challenged.
That leaves us with the question… what’s next?
Parkinson’s UK Design Sprint
For the last 50 years there have been little to no improvements in the treatment of Parkinson’s. Motivated to be a part of this change, Accenture UKI’s Innovation Programme ran a 5-day design sprint with Parkinson’s UK to identify the key problem, generate business viable ideas, select the most technically feasible solution, and produce a final functioning prototype within a week to improve Parkinson’s symptoms for users.
Watch design thinking in action and be inspired by how quickly innovation can create positive change.

Breakthrough thinking: Unlocked
Just because it has always been that way doesn’t mean it should always continue that way. To truly innovate, everyday conventions should be challenged. Our belief is that you should look beyond the obvious and predictable solutions, and focus on the most compelling question of all: “What happens next?”.
The London Innovation Centre is a unique, immersive and interactive space where our clients can align leadership teams and achieve breakthrough thinking on their key challenges. Come on a colourful journey with us to find out what our happy clients have said about the experience.
