How we’re bringing trusted data and insights to where our people are
September 13, 2021
Good decision making is a natural part of any successful business. And we all know that having the best facts at our fingertips is essential in getting those decisions right. But there is sometimes a bit of doubt. What about when we don’t know what we don’t know? It’s an age-old challenge we can tackle with applied intelligence—and one of the reasons why Accenture is automating our employee experience to be more intelligent.
I was talking about this topic recently with the managing director for Accenture’s Applied Intelligence Services, Lee Barrett, and my global IT colleague responsible for digital experiences, Jason Warnke. Jason and I shared how we are using applied intelligence-powered automation in our business. It helps us to identify patterns, make decisions on those patterns, automate those decisions and then—perhaps the most important part of all—optimize outcomes. Along the way, our tools can give our people better experiences in the field—and that’s always good for business.
I don’t believe there’s a one-size fits all solution to tech issues, even in an organization as large as ours. But it is important to make the best use of what you have—for me progress wins over perfection any day. So, if you already have the tech needed in-house to improve the experiences of your people, I recommend using it.
Here’s some of the things we’ve learned about automating applied intelligence that you could put into practice right now:
Change has been a huge part of Accenture’s own digital workforce journey. Analytics has helped our organization to make changes in bite-sized chunks, which has meant we can bring that mindset and process to a lot of different areas.
We’ve used a whole range of different tactics to introduce new ways of doing things—and our change and adoption team makes sure that the success that we defined upfront continues to happen. The team reminds people what the goal is, how their jobs will be made easier and how we can, ultimately, improve the experience for them and their clients ongoing.
