Get into a growth state of mind
Eight out of ten companies say their growth agenda has changed since the start of the pandemic. With growth becoming more important to investors, leaders, and boards it is now everybody’s business, not just for ‘growth companies.’ But innovating is hard. It requires a focus on customers as well as employees, on new sources of revenue and the existing business of today, and there are no silver bullets or models you can copy from other companies.
Our new research has identified a set of six growth practices that, when managed together, can help companies to unlock their growth potential to achieve an always-on state of growth – and more ‘good growth’ that creates 360 Value.

Our U.S. Innovation Hubs
Located in 10 major cities across the United States, our network of Innovation Hubs is the engine where we push the boundaries of the possible with our clients.
Each Hub is home to multidisciplinary teams of designers, developers and other technology experts who work with clients to investigate, imagine and bring to life new ideas. Bringing together the company’s full suite of innovation capabilities, each Hub taps the local talent technology ecosystem, including startups, universities and industry leaders. Each is connected to more than 100 Accenture locations around the globe to seamlessly bring the best of Accenture’s global investments and insights to its clients on the ground.
We recognize the important role professional apprenticeships can play in closing the skills gap in the United States, providing under served groups greater access to innovation economy jobs and helping reskill workers whose jobs have been, or will be, disrupted by technology.
In 2017, Accenture and Aon cofounded the Chicago Apprenticeship Network–partnering with employers like McDonald’s, Zurich Insurance and Walgreens to jump start their professional apprenticeship programs. There are now 400+ apprenticeships committed across 23 member organizations, with a plan to grow to 1,000 by 2020.
In collaboration with Aon, the Chicago Apprentice Network and the Business Roundtable, we launched an apprenticeship playbook which focuses on the key steps, considerations and case studies for apprenticeships in professional positions.
We hope the playbook will enable other companies to join the national movement for professional apprenticeship programs and help us create a more inclusive innovation economy.
Consumer trust and confidence are essential. To achieve this, all companies that collect, use, share, or otherwise handle their customer’s personal data must do so responsibly and with integrity.
Our clients reach virtually every American consumer and rely on data and digital platforms every day to deliver and improve our products and services. Businesses that treat data collection and data strategy as part of the consumer experience will benefit from greater consumer willingness to share information.
That’s why we are committed to partnering with our clients to protect consumer privacy. It’s also why support the establishment of a national consumer privacy law to protect consumers, promote innovation and advance U.S. competitiveness.
