It forms the basis for a successful career within Accenture Technology. The school covers all phases of the FORM project lifecycle, professional skills (e.g. Design Thinking & Storytelling), project delivery methods (e.g. Agile & DevOps) and some new IT topics (e.g. Blockchain & the Technology vision). The school has an interactive program consisting of exercises, a week-long building activity, quizzes and fun prizes to win.

  • Week four and five (depending on the department that you will work for): you participate in one of the department specific programs in which you are prepared to specialize further within Technology.
