There’s a war out there and we’re ordered to stay in here. What role can you and I play – depends on who exactly and where exactly we are.

I am Andre Yap, CEO of Ignite House, based in Manila, capital of the Philippines, one of only 14 countries with more than 100 million human beings.

Corona is here, racing across our cities – our hospitals, our homes, our businesses, our livelihoods, our next paycheck. Life is on lockdown. This is humanity, all of us vs. a global pandemic with no mercy and no conscience.

Three days ago, at our company all-hands, it became clear where my team must fight the good fight. Every one of us committed to launch this counterstrike in 3 days. Here we are.

We are not doctors, we are not in government. But we know how to do 2 things very well: we know how to relentlessly focus teams; and we know how to get them to solve problems fast.

And so we call this counterstrike 100HOUR LAUNCHPAD and we developed it especially for business leaders in this time of Corona – when we all need to act fast even as we are crippled and the rules have suddenly changed.

We want you to use this tool for free.

100HOUR LAUNCHPAD is a step-by-step toolkit to help business leaders get our people re-focused, re-organized, and launching solutions in 100 hours or less.

Especially if we are a company of hundreds or thousands, this is a tool we can use freely up and down our ranks, to empower our people to solve problems quickly.

Specifically, 100HOUR LAUNCHPAD will get us through these 5 critical steps:

First: Get our people re-focused on burning stakeholder needs closest to them. For some this will be the burning needs of customers; for others, the burning needs of colleagues or of partners. Whatever, the first order of battle is to focus our people on a concrete mission to help others.

Second: Get our people organized, ideally self-organized, into smaller teams that can work fast.

Third: Get our teams to work methodically fast – rapid cycles of prototype-test-iterate – until breakthroughs are launched.

Fourth: Do all of the above – from zero to launch – in 100 hours or less.

Fifth: Do it over and over to solve critical problems all across our value chain.

And bonus: do it remotely so that we keep social distancing as best we can.

100HOUR LAUNCHPAD will help us help our customers, our people, our partners get on with their lives, endure one or two less burdens, in these most trying times.

This is our part in this global war. We all have our battlefields, we all have our fights in this, humanity’s one big fight.

Let’s each do our part. COVID-19 will not beat us.
