I have an interview with Accenture strategy hiring manager soon. I wish to learn from experiences of candidates who went through an Accenture interview...

Are there any preparation materials available online ? Can I use preparation materials from Big4?

In general the interviews at Accenture are not that structured:

  • No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the interviewer
  • 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
  • 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
  • Interviews with the partners will most probably have no case at all
  • Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer
  • For fit I would prepare: Story about yourself; Why consulting; Why Accenture; Leadership; Team work; Your questions to the interviewer

In your case, applying for a senior manager role, will require mainly the functional knowledge and the good fit answers. You may have some case-type questions, but they would sound more like "How would you structure the workstreams and the team for this project?"
