Mr. Adams career spans over thirty years. Early in his career he held management positions in Fortune 100 companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Borg Warner Health Products and Herman Miller. After leaving the corporate setting he found and built three management consulting firms, the last of which he sold to Perot System as part of their pre IPO strategy. There he reported to the internationally acclaimed thought leader, author and then Vice Chairman of Perot, Mr. James Champy. In this position he focused his attention on leveraging Perot’s technology to help improve the health care delivery system, while contributing to Mr. Champy’s second book entitled, X Engineering The Corporation.

Upon Perot’s IPO Mr. Adams left the company to form Whitespace Consulting, an innovation and change management firm concentrating on health care and technology. There he invented a patent pending change program called The Value Component® System. Since 1998 he has   successfully applied his program in many Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of assignments. In 2010 he upgraded and re-launched the platform under the name OutcomeDynamics™, which today is being touted as “Innovation Architecture”. In 2011 he founded Whitespace Healthcare focused on private practice, and in particular interventional medicine. Here he utilizes his ‘Innovation Architecture” to reinvent the bench marks for achieving performance excellence within private practice. His aim is to ensure private practice survives the “Storm of Reform” swirling throughout the health care industry. To accomplish this end his company’s research division has performed an extensive year-long study entitled Practice Performance … Drivers to Metrics. The study provided critical factors which confront private practice as they attempt to survive health care reform. He is authoring a series of white papers and lectures on the topic to raise awareness of the catastrophic impact the loss of private practice could have on the economic, social and political landscape of America. He is also authoring a book on the subject entitled The Race to Practice Excellence, which is due for release in 2013.

As well throughout his consulting carrier Mr. Adams has served as interim executive in several turn-around situations and has sat on the boards of both public (NASDAQ) and private firms advising C-Level Executives on strategic matters. He also has been a sought-after keynote and subject-matter speaker for professional associations and corporate venous on topics related to innovation, change management and performance improvement.
