Adam Dole is a business planning manager at Mayo Clinic. His primary responsibility is to incubate opportunities for future Mayo Clinic products, services, and businesses. His current focus includes creating new services that extend Mayo Clinic's reach and impact beyond the hospital walls.
He’s also a mentor for Rock Health, an early-stage startup incubator based in San Francisco. He helps digital health startups navigate the complex healthcare landscape and ecosystem to ensure that proposed solutions address the proper unmet needs in order to have the largest impact.
The DMBA is on the leading edge of business school curricula. It has provided me with one of the most relevant business degrees I could have imagined in today's rapidly changing world, where traditional models of problem solving and value creation are not enough.
CCA’s DMBA program helped me acquire the knowledge, skill sets, and most importantly, the confidence required to lead change inside of a large-scale organization.
In 2013 Adam headed off to Washington DC as part of the second cohort of Presidential Innovation Fellows; he was one of 43 selected out of more than 2,000 applicants for this program that pairs top innovators from the private sector, nonprofits, and academia with top innovators in government to collaborate during focused “tours of duty” to develop solutions that can save lives, save taxpayer money, and fuel job creation.

DMBA chair Nathan Shedroff had -- and continues to have -- a major influence in helping me shape my career.
Nathan's relentless quest for "meaning" in everything he does as a mentor, design leader, and teacher is not only inspiring and but also contagious.
His energy for setting everyone around him up for success is a perfect demonstration of what it looks like to lead by example.
