On November 29th, 14 students of the Supply Chain Management Master Vienna participated in a workshop with Accenture at WU. The topic of the evening “Strategy Workshop – Consultant for One Night”, included a brief presentation of the consultants (incl. 2 SCM Alumni) followed by 3 different games, where the participants could apply theories about the prisoner´s dilemma, personality styles, and new technologies.
To begin, the alumni Jan Gottstein and his team talked about Accenture as a company, its business model and global presence followed by a short presentation of a possible career path in the company. Thereafter, the three games were presented, and the participants split into 3 groups. With the support of 1 or 2 Accenture consultants the SCM students played several rounds and discussed the practical relevance of the findings. As a result, every group gained important insights into a consultant´s life. Afterwards, Accenture invited all participants to a get-together with food and drinks in order to give the students the possibility to talk face-to-face to the instructors and gain additional information about their work at Accenture.
The SCM Network wants to thank Accenture for this inspiring event and is looking forward to future events together.
