At Accenture, our Innovation Consulting team helps clients not only brainstorm big ideas, but also build the innovation capabilities necessary to support and sustain those pursuits. We solve for the "the How" - How will these new ideas deliver maximum impact for our clients' organizations? How can we help our clients scale their innovation efforts?
We are a team of intrapreneurs, catalysts, industry specialists, leaders, makers, investors, and consumers. We are looking for individuals to join our team who can simultaneously understand the big picture and have a strong command of the details. The team is seeking an Innovation Consultant who is excited to help our clients build their own innovation capabilities (labs, studios, hubs, ventures, etc.) and maximize their investments.
As an Innovation Consultant, you will be responsible for building positive relationships with client teams, proactively sharing ideas and recommendations for practice improvement, and contributing to a culture of collaboration and shared success.
