pH1000

This program did not come out of thin air. Andre and I and our teams have been working on this the last 3-4 years, every piece of it and continuing to move it forward – precisely to fit our most critical needs as a 60-year-old company in fast-changing markets… we need a different kind of talent. Ni2 is a proven formula, it will get you through… take the chance to get involved, to subscribe and really learn from it.

JOJO CONCEPCION
Chairman & CEO of Concepcion Industrial Corporation, a 60-year-old company whose brands are in millions of Filipino homes while employing thousands of Filipinos. Gravely concerned about the talent crisis in the Philippines, Jojo is leading transformation efforts as Chair of Ni2's Advisory Board to power 100,000 Filipino Innovators by 2023.

ANDRE A. YAP
Founder & CEO of IGNITE HOUSE OF INNOVATIONS, which invests and operates in venture capital, tech, media, education, healthcare, energy, hospitality, food, agri, HR and enterprise solutions. Andre also serves as Executive Chair of Ni2, THE NATIONAL INNOVATORS INITATIVE to power 100,000 Filipino Innovators.

Talent and peak performance! That’s the biggest reason why we started this entire National Innovators Initiative. As a serial entrepreneur and investor who’s started and invested in 30+ ventures, I’m involved in hiring so much hiring – be it for my own companies or for ventures we’re invested in and this extends to our partners in big corporations who also co-invest with us.


The good news: we’re invested in great founders… world-class individuals even from Silicon Valley we’re getting them here… they’re building great products that impact hundreds of thousands of Filipino customers.


But the bad news is really bad. All of them (all of us!) eventually hit a brick wall in the Philippines: WE CANNOT FIND ENOUGH TALENT FOR OUR TEAMS, IT’S THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE TO FULFILLING OUR VISION OF IMPACT.


So all of Ni2 and especially this PH1000 initiative is meant to transform the Philippines’ talent scarcity into a force of thousands of top-notch Filipinos, and to signal to recruiters like us: THESE ARE THE PEOPLE YOU WANT TO HIRE!


For those of you who will part of PH1000, let me assure you – you will have plenty of rewarding job opps, you will have projects and gigs, you will have superstar careers with superstar income waiting for you.

PH1000 is 100% merit-based. For talent-hungry recruiters (be it giant conglomerates, fast-growing ventures or SMEs) PH1000 is the most accurate and unbiased predictor of success and impact we’ve ever had in the market.

 

PH1000 is the future of talent and we’re bringing it to you now!

If you ask big companies like us: what are we looking for in grads, in the people we hire? It's agility, ability to thrive in constant change and a diversity of situations, creative problem-solving, critical thinking, rapid prototyping, moving fast, iterating based on feedback loops. But it's also things like empathy, customer-centricity and human-centered design thinking. And people who have a deep sense of purpose, the self-awareness, resilience and grit to tough it out because they care deeply about their work.

These are the most critical skills we need to take our company to the next level, from our first 60 years to our next 100 years. These are the skills that will define our highest potential employees who will create the biggest success - for us and for themselves. Education has a purpose, but schools are not giving us the people we need. We are hungry for talent and we are not getting them from schools.
MIKE DAUDEN
Head of Digital and E-Commerce
Mike This is not just textbook, it’s something we do araw-araw.

What are the benefits? To be honest, I have already benefited. So when I say "these are the benefits", I don’t mean "hey guys these are the benefits if you follow this". No, I’m saying these are benefits I myself, our company, my teams have already realized.

3 things...

1) Compassion: starting, not with products (the mistake of a lot of us marketing and sales guys out there!), but with customers and their pains.
2) Agility: moving very fast, pivoting. Especially because of the pandemic we’ve had to pivot our channels, our biz models, everything we do, everyday. I’m now in charge of 7 different projects that are all pandemic babies, all things we never used to do - so had I not had the Ignite/Ni2 innovation mindset it would be difficult for me to adapt.
3) Purpose: our Ignite/Ni2 experience has helped us tie Compassion (I found a pain) and Agility (I’m able to solve pains in 100-day cycles) into a deep sense of Purpose. When you find your purpose you’re no longer working for a pay check. We found something bigger.

So in sum, I’m actually one of the beneficiaries already and doing Ni2 will allow me to benefit even more and share it with the others.

The competencies we are building in school may not be enough. So this part of our Ni2 program will augment the rigors of classroom training and bring it back to actual work. It also allows us to break down barriers, help us build relationships and learning opportunities across silos.

The talent gap persists in fast-growing startups. Hear it straight from the founder and CEO and investorss

DAVID FOOTE
FOUNDER & CEO, ZENNYA HEALTH
David We’ve had so many successes but also critical factors that hold us back. Our biggest problem in the Philippines? Definitely, hiring the right people and finding the courageous innovators who will help us in our journey of transforming an industry as critical as healthcare.

One of the things I ask when I recruit is: are you willing to be a pirate? Comes from a famous speech by Steve Jobs - it’s more fun to be a pirate (innovators) than to join the navy (typical corporate). You’re gonna have to break rules… you need to have the personal courage to challenge the status quo.
JOJO CONCEPCION
Zennya investor and strategic partner
Jojo It’s hard to get pirates! That has been the biggest challenge for us too. We’ve been looking to expand our group and create innovations but it’s been very difficult to find the people who can do it. Talent is important and that’s why we work with academe, but the last 20 years of education have not taught people how to think and behave like pirates.
ANDRE YAP
Zennya investor
Andre It's what we spend the most time on in board meetings and frankly what worries investors the most. At the end of the day, our ability to grow and fulfill our market ambitions and the ROI we're looking for - it will come down to whether we can recruit the right people and build the right teams. And we're failing in that - we just can't find enough of the right people up and down the ranks and all across our hiring needs. This is what Jojo calls the talent crisis.

Going back to David’s pirates vs navy… innovation does not happen if you don’t have innovators. Companies are willing to hire these types at a high salary, but they cannot find the people who can measure up to this work and income.

                THAT'S RIGHT, THERE'S A WINNO IN YOU!

                Winnovators have the unique ability to keep launching winning innovations, keep staying relevant and a force for good no matter how the world changes.
                sh2
                As a result, Winnovators create the biggest opportunities for success and impact – for their career, company, and community!

                As a result, Winnovators create the biggest opportunities for success and impact – for next level breakthroughs – for their career, company, and community!

                Here are 4 hallmarks of Winnovators (people who create winning innovations):

                • Winnovators create big wins for customers.
                • Winnovators create big wins for employees and partners.
                • Winnovators create big wins for company revenue and profits.
                • Winnovators create big wins that are sustainable at scale.
                Our goal in Ni2 is to bring out the Winnovator in you – by helping you hit the 5 Gears of Winnovation in 30-60-90-day cycles:
                5GEARS
                5) BUSINESS OUTCOMES
                4) RELEVANT SOLUTIONS
                3) PEAK PERFORMANCE
                2) OPERATING SYSTEM
                1) COMMITTED JOURNEY
                headr
                sh3

                5TH GEAR: BUSINESS OUTCOMES

                Winnovators consistently make a positive impact on key business outcomes.
                Growth Chart (1)

                4TH GEAR: RELEVANT SOLUTIONS

                But what drives superior business outcomes?

                It’s our ability to consistently deliver market-driven and timely solutions (e.g., products, services, systems, processes, workflows, campaigns, etc.) that keep us relevant to customers’ pains, needs, wants and opportunities – especially as they shift and evolve so fast.
                wincanvas

                3RD GEAR: PEAK PERFORMANCE

                But we don’t get to 4th and 5th gear on automatic – relevant solutions don’t launch and optimize themselves. It takes people and teams who are consistently at peak performance…
                h6

                2ND GEAR: OPERATING SYSTEM

                What, then, drives peak performing individuals, teams and organizations?

                It’s their Operating System: the practices and behaviors they apply to their work x the frequency with which they apply these practices and behaviors x the % of the workforce who practices the correct behaviors consistently.
                PB x F x WF

                1ST GEAR: WINNOVATOR JOURNEY

                The O/S works – it will accelerate and operationalize Winnovation in our people and teams. All we need to get this virtuous cycle going is… desire and commitment!

                Ultimately, we will realize this truth about Winnovators….

                Pixar of D1 module
                As with everything else in life, to arrive at our destination, we must commit to the journey!
                sh2

                If you want to ignite the Winnovator in you, your team or entire company, this is the O/S formula:

                PB x F x WF

                It’s our mission to show you how and support you every step of the way.

                WHAT ARE YOU LAUNCHING?

                🔲  I’m 30-60 days from launching

                🔲  I’m working on something

                🔲  I have a strong idea

                🔲  I need to validate my idea

                🔲  I need an idea

                ✋ I’m happy to share what I’m working on as a live case study.

                RULES OF THE ROAD:

                1. RESPECT. Each and every one of us pays utmost respect to the ideas and sharings of our peers. I pay utmost respect to others as I expect others to pay utmost respect to me. That said, I exercise my own good judgment in what I choose to share – because anything I share becomes open to the public.
                2. SHARE. Ideas do not make winnovations. Execution makes winnovations – specifically agile execution accelerated by applied learning and collaboration.

                IGNITE MANIFESTO

                At Ignite, we know these to be true:

                Genius

                First, that I am gifted with my own Genius –
                unique, unrepeated and unrepeatable
                for all time.

                Purpose

                Second, that my singular Genius bears
                the thumbprint of Who I Am and Why I am Here.

                Genius points to Purpose, Purpose to Genius.

                Service

                Third, that I can only give out
                of what I have been given.
                And what I have been given,
                I must give and live for others.

                Genius finds its fullness in Service –
                a Purpose bigger than self.

                Mission

                Fourth, that if I am honest and brave,
                my Genius and Purpose will find
                their manifest call in a shared Mission –
                with others, for others.

                A Mission rooted in finding
                that particular slice of humanity
                whose particular pains
                I am particularly gifted
                (and compelled!) to heal.

                Collaboration

                Fifth, that shared Mission
                leads naturally to Collaboration.

                Shared Mission demands
                Shared Genius: mine, yours, ours.

                Innovation

                If we are a collection of our own Genius –
                each unique, unrepeated, unrepeatable –
                where then can we go, but to Innovation.

                Impact

                We Ignite, therefore, not just for self,
                but for each other.

                Because what we are born to do,
                we are born to do with others
                and for others.

                We need each other’s Genius.
                And far beyond Genius,
                we need each other to be on this journey,
                to fulfill this necessary progression:
                from a sense of our own individual
                Genius, Purpose, and Service (GPS)
                toward shared Mission and Collaboration,
                and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

                Transcendence

                This is the path of transcendence.

                This is how we lift each other
                to heights we never in our wildest dreams,
                or loftiest ambitions, dared.

                Let's get Started

                C-Suite Huddles

                The C-Suite Huddles are conducted as 1:1 Zoom interviews, each interview taking no more than 60 minutes with each leader.

                The format is conversational, the vibe informal and light. We record the interview and play it during our community gatherings with Ni2 Innovators-In-Residence and guests.

                These are the primary topics of conversation:

                number 1
                So much has changed in so short a time. The way we work, learn, play, shop, consume, etc. So many changes in so many aspects of life. We’d love to get a window into the top 3 most important market shifts your organization is responding to at the moment?
                number 2
                Can you give us a sense of the corresponding initiatives (or innovations) you are pursuing to stay relevant to or ahead of these market shifts?
                number 3
                In Ni2 we always look at innovation from the lens of customer impact and customer experience. We’d love to hear your vision of how these market shifts and the innovations you are pursuing will utimately impact the customer.
                How will they benefit and how will their lives be meaningfully better?
                number 4
                What are your organization’s biggest obstacles (or hurdles) in launching these innovations (or innovations in general)?
                number 5
                So much will continue to change, faster and faster all the time – it’s the VUCA reality that puts relentless pressure on people, teams and organizations to keep staying relevant no matter how much the world changes.

                Based on your own personal experience (not necessarily what’s written in books or what gurus are talking up), what are the top 3 most important skills and competencies needed in today’s workplace, especially insofar as helping teams stay relevant in VUCA times?

                Fourth, that if I am honest and brave,

                connecting flights

                That’s why we architected Ni2 to be an All-In-One Accelerator:

                And far beyond Genius,

                we need each other to be on this journey,

                to fulfill this necessary progression:

                from a sense of our own individual

                Genius, Purpose, and Service (GPS)

                toward shared Mission and Collaboration,

                and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

                This is the path of transcendence.

                 

                This is how we lift each other
                to heights we never in our wildest dreams,
                or loftiest ambitions, dared.

                IGNITE MANIFESTO

                At Ignite, we know these to be true:

                Genius

                First, that I am gifted with my own Genius –
                unique, unrepeated and unrepeatable
                for all time.

                Purpose

                Second, that my singular Genius bears
                the thumbprint of Who I Am and Why I am Here.

                Genius points to Purpose, Purpose to Genius.

                Service

                Third, that I can only give out
                of what I have been given.
                And what I have been given,
                I must give and live for others.

                Genius finds its fullness in Service –
                a Purpose bigger than self.

                Mission

                Fourth, that if I am honest and brave,
                my Genius and Purpose will find
                their manifest call in a shared Mission –
                with others, for others.

                A Mission rooted in finding
                that particular slice of humanity
                whose particular pains
                I am particularly gifted
                (and compelled!) to heal.

                Collaboration

                Fifth, that shared Mission
                leads naturally to Collaboration.

                Shared Mission demands
                Shared Genius: mine, yours, ours.

                Innovation

                If we are a collection of our own Genius –
                each unique, unrepeated, unrepeatable –
                where then can we go, but to Innovation.

                Impact

                We Ignite, therefore, not just for self,
                but for each other.

                Because what we are born to do,
                we are born to do with others
                and for others.

                We need each other’s Genius.
                And far beyond Genius,
                we need each other to be on this journey,
                to fulfill this necessary progression:
                from a sense of our own individual
                Genius, Purpose, and Service (GPS)
                toward shared Mission and Collaboration,
                and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

                Transcendence

                This is the path of transcendence.

                This is how we lift each other
                to heights we never in our wildest dreams,
                or loftiest ambitions, dared.
