Accenture Acquires Future State

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has acquired Future State, an Oakland, CA-based change management consulting firm.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

Future State’s 75-person team – led by CEO Shannon Adkins – joins the Talent & Organization / Human Potential practice at Accenture, adding expertise focused on agile business transformation.

A certified B Corp, Future State provides clients within the life sciences, CPG and technology industries with expert planning, communication, team coaching and empathy building solutions.

Future State complements Accenture’s most recent Talent & Organization / Human Potential acquisition — Kates Kesler, made in 2020 — that aims to expand client offerings and create new ways to deliver value with a deep understanding of client needs and market challenges.

The firm’s approach — along with credentials in product development enablement, business growth and post-merger integration — add new methodologies that expand Accenture’s existing C-suite offerings.
