Accenture Federal Digital Studio

We put people first to design and deliver services, solutions and products that radically simplify how we engage with government.

Face the future with confidence

The pace of change continues to accelerate. While it’s increasingly important for federal agencies to stay ahead of the curve, it’s also difficult to even know what that curve may look like. How can federal agencies better prepare for what’s ahead when the future feels so uncertain?

Strategic foresight can help, by providing a framework for challenging assumptions and imagining new scenarios in today's fast-moving world. It has two key benefits:

  1. It can strengthen resiliency, by enabling organizations to visualize, explore and prepare for the unimaginable. 
  2. It can foster innovation, helping organizations envision and evaluate new approaches they would not have otherwise considered.

In a new report, learn four steps federal leaders can take to begin adopting and scaling strategic foresight across their agencies.

Explore how federal leaders can proactively explore diverse futures to anticipate change, withstand disruptions, and seize new opportunities.

Commitment to diversity

Inclusion matters. Diversity is at the core of who we are. As we stand together against racism our commitment is unwavering.

We believe in creating opportunities for talented people. Though talent is equally distributed, opportunities are not – and we strive to change that.

That’s why we are committed to developing the next generation of talent. Does your student group or non-profit work with underserved populations? If so, our volunteers would be happy to connect to share career insights and design thinking approaches.
