Welcome to Accord

Data is all around us, but we seldom notice it — whether it is in patterns of nature that we process subconsciously, or workplace decisions guided by real and empirical information. This powerful, yet unnoticed, fact is one of the cornerstones of Accord’s genesis. We help decision makers transition to using data consciously, to their advantage.

Accord was first established in 1983 in India to provide soft skills and leadership training. In 2009, Accord was launched in Singapore to offer these services to a wider demographic. By 2013-14, when organizational success became dependent on data literacy, we transitioned to data analytics training and consulting. We were among the first to equip companies to think analytically and drive decision-making through data.
