The Dock is a diverse team of creative problem-solvers within Accenture – where design, business and technology meet under one roof. Here’s what's currently occupying our minds in Accenture’s flagship R&D and Global Innovation Centre.

    What you need to innovate 

    What you need to innovate 

    What exactly do we mean and want when it comes to innovation? Is diversity relevant? Is failure really permissible or are we just dealing in rhetoric? In a new podcast series, Gen Woods is joined by two of Accenture’s most exciting leaders in this space: Saideep Raj is Accenture’s Global Managing Director for Innovation; and Marc Carrel-Billiard, who is Global Senior Managing Director for Technology Innovation.

    Your Whole Self

    Your Whole Self

    It is widely believed that people work best in innovation when they are being most authentic to themselves. As a result, they need to bring their whole selves into the workplace.
    But is this an idea that can be more readily expressed than executed? Is it a good idea to be your true self in work? How do we compensate people for work in which we’re asking them to bring their whole, true selves? And for people does this actually mean they are always working and always on?
    We’re joined by Rachel O’Reilly, Human Resources Lead at The Dock, Declan Noone, a leadership coach and former Army officer + Rachel Kenny, a researcher in our Human Insights Lab who specialises in mental health and technology.
    This is a discussion on the latest edition of DockPod, the podcast from The Dock, Accenture’s global R&D hub.

    The Tough Truth about Innovation

    The Tough Truth about Innovation

    To secure their futures, organisations need to constantly innovate. And if you need compelling evidence of this, 2020 has it in spades. In a moment of reflection, DockPod brought together several of our innovation leaders to discuss what innovation really means when you are working with it day-to-day and whether or not companies have a real appetite for the experimentation and attendant failure that is necessary to make it work. This episode features Ryan Shanks, Director of The Dock in Dublin, which is Accenture’s global R&D center. He is joined by: Europe Innovation Lead Lucy Cooper; Senthil Ramani who looks after Innovation in the Growth Markets; and Shivani Vora who leads Innovation for North America.
    DockPod is produced by The Dock, Accenture’s flagship R&D and global innovation center. It is presented by Laurence Mackin and produced by Sinead O’Shea.

    The Financial Art of Experimental Banking

    The Financial Art of Experimental Banking

    Is now a good time for businesses to be bold and is the banking sector in particular ready for a radical overhaul? Welcome to the latest episode of DockPod, which is produced by The Dock, Accenture’s flagship R&D and global innovation center. We are living through tough times: Along with the ongoing threat to public health, the global economy is under severe pressure and many countries are experiencing their worst unemployment rates in decades. Given these circumstances, it could seem counter-intuitive for industries such as banking to pick this moment to initiate significant change. Yet, this is exactly what some experts think should happen. And some are making the case that banks should seize this moment to re-define their entire purpose and focus on serving society more. In this episode, we are joined by Accenture Interactive’s head of innovation and Fjord founder Mark Curtis, financial services lead at The Dock Conor McAndrew, and innovation delivery lead Sara Harrison. DockPod is produced by The Dock, Accenture’s flagship R&D and global innovation center. It is presented by Laurence Mackin and Sinead O’Shea.
