SWOT Analysis
STRENGTHS
 The largest consulting firm globally-in terms of
revenue, it is the largest consulting business around
the globe.
 The firm has a fantastic ethics in business and when
it comes to performance, it does not compromise.
 Strong clientele- the firm has a large client based
whereby it acts as a consulting firm to many
organizations with top notch companies seeking
their services.
 For instance, 90% of the100 fortune companies and
over a half of all global companies have chosen
Accenture as their consulting firm.
WEAKNESSES
Lack of coordination- the firm has 19 units of
business which work collaboratively with the clients and
also with. This has often led to conflicts since there is no
internal coordination. It depends much on its consulting
business instead of pitting equal focus on IT and BPO
which can add revenue.
One major weakness of the company is getting too
comfortable with its differentiation strategies leading to
its competition beating it. The company uses a lot of cash
in the advertising processes thereby having fewer
finances to contribute to its growth. Paying its workers
high salaries that are provided with the insurance health.
This is a weakness since the company is left with less
disposable income to spend on its operations
OPPORTUNITIES
 On opportunity is expansion of business, where the
firm can target small and mid-sized projects to grow
its market share. It can also enter into mergers and
acquisitions like it did with Gaspo and Agilex solution
thus reducing competition.
 The company also has the opportunities to expand
its operation to the foreign markets especially the
emerging markets.
THREATS
 One threat is competition where the tough
competing IT environment has been worrying the
company. The company faces competition from
companies like IBM, Infosys, and CapGemeni who
are all IT firms.
 It is imperative for the company to counter the
strategies employed by these companies to survive
on the market Bad financial times is also a threat for
the firm as it suffered a major setback during the
recession period as it highly depended on premium
clients.
 There are also threats or challenges within the
environment which hinder the company’s smooth
operation. These threats include rapid change in
technology which renders the company’s products
obsolete at higher rate and agile competition.
