Accenture Plc’s hunt for talent is turning it into the world’s most acquisitive company, helping the $172 billion consultancy become a bigger force in everything from digital marketing to industrial automation.

Accenture has announced at least 65 takeovers over the past two years, more than any other major business, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It’s snapping up a target every week and a half on average, keeping it busier than private-equity giants like Blackstone Group Inc. and KKR & Co.
