In today's business environment, growth isn't just about building value-it's fundamental to long-term business survival. So how do organizations sustain themselves? The key is a new operating model-one that's anchored around the customer and propelled by intelligence to deliver exceptional experiences across the enterprise at speed and at scale. You will deliver breakthrough business outcomes for clients-by harnessing talent, data and intelligence to revolutionize their operating models.

Operations is one of four services that make up one Accenture -the others are Strategy and Consulting, Interactive and Technology.

The role of the Operations Studio Experience Lead is to imagine, design, and facilitate experiences that will accelerate our business' growth. Experiences include stories, demos, simulations, coaching sessions, and workshops. These experiences accelerate our business growth by either getting our clients ready to do more with Accenture Operations OR by getting our teams ready to change their client relationships.

Additional Responsibilities
  • Experience Design is the ability to imagine, design, build, and facilitate an experience. Experiences can include client site visits, orals, design thinking workshop, solution review and any other touch point across the sales or account management process. Experience design also encompasses the time between meetings, before or after meetings that can affect a client's perception of Accenture. An Experience Lead should be Experienced/Skilled in Design Thinking/FORM, general facilitation techniques, psychological principles underpinning adult learning, memory, emotion, and engagement, and event design.
  • Communication refers to your ability to effectively convey an idea, fact, concept, story, message, etc. from one person or group to another. Communication effectiveness is based on the receiver's understanding of the information not the sender's assertion of effectiveness. Rate yourself on your skill in the area and your ability to coach others. An Experience Lead should be skilled enough to coach others and implement their own coaching in these elements of communication: Visual Communication, Data Visualization, Written Word, Verbal Presentations, Storytelling, Communication Structure design. An Experience Lead should also be very comfortable using standard Office Tools (Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, Word) and collaboration tools (Mural, Whiteboard, Menti).
  • Emotional Intelligence is a hard-to-define skill set focused on one's ability to connect with others, to sense their needs and be a trusted guide and coach. Self-awareness is an important aspect of EQ along with the ability to adapt based on feedback and reflection. A Senior Experience Lead should be an exceptional listener, a calming presence to the team, a trusted advisor and adaptive in tense situations. They must be able to manage their own emotions under pressure, work well with a range of personalities, and work to build consensus with others. An Experience Lead should also have a strong growth mindset and be comfortable with feedback and seeking ways to improve.
  • One of the Studio's differentiators is our understanding of Operations. An experience Lead must marry together an understanding of and appreciation for Operations with their creative talents. They need to stay apprised or our key messages, assets, best demos, presenters and practices in communicating the power of Operations.
  • This is a hands-on role. Experience Leads are often asked to create their own assets, build and edit slides, organize and manage their work and the work of others, and write stories. The small size of our team requires the ability to both imagine and execute. The Experience Lead will have demonstrated the ability to develop and lead new experiences that can change a person's perspective and empower them to act.
