Accenture - Minnesota

We Partner With Our Clients At The Intersection Of Business And Technology To Drive Real Innovation—the Kind That Turns An Idea Into An Industry—helping Them Transform And Grow Their Organizations.




How we work with our clients
Growing customer expectations, market-shaping applied intelligence, selfoptimizing systems—the post-digital age shows no signs of slowing down, and the need for new ideas powered by intelligent technologies has never been greater. But a vision for the future can’t be realized without knowhow. That’s why Accenture invests again and again in specialized skills across more than 40 industries, all business functions and an innovation architecture spanning research, ventures, labs, studios, innovation centers and the world’s largest delivery network.

With more than 500,000 people serving clients in more than 120 countries, we drive innovation to improve the way the world works and lives. “It’s all about the wise pivot,” says Christy Sovereign, head of Accenture’s Minneapolis office, “and helping our clients in Minnesota and around the globe move from constant disruption to continuous reinvention. We help them look at the old, now and new simultaneously to unlock trapped value and implement a path forward.”

Minneapolis-based Brian Kalis, digital health expert at Accenture, travels around the globe to improve health experiences for patients, clinicians and employees noting “the reinvention happening right here in my own
backyard stands out and is a true testament to the leaders and innovative DNA of our region.” Minneapolis-based Lori Zumwinkle, retail expert at Accenture agrees “there is a lot to learn from how our local retailers—large and small—have demonstrated customer relevance and delivered retail with a purpose.”

What we believe
How we grow matters, and we must create inclusive economic growth to achieve a socially equitable and environmentally stable world.

Jobs are changing, and we can’t leave people behind. Through our research on the impact of automation and augmentation on the Twin Cities workforce, we collaborate on accelerated pathways to emerging technology
training and automation resilient jobs through the Accenture Apprentice Program. Inclusion and diversity make us smarter. In fact, our research shows equality is a powerful multiplier of innovation and growth. We
hold ourselves accountable to a culture of equality and progress against bold goals—publishing the demographics of our US workforce annually. As a professional services company, the most significant aspects of our environmental footprint are generated by travel and the electricity used in our office locations. We continue to explore and deploy innovative technologies to decouple business growth from emissions growth. And finally, we connect Minnesota to the world—bringing the full know-how of the Accenture global team and innovation architecture to deliver results for our clients.
