Managing Gen Y Effectively & Efficiently

“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. It’s not about money, it’s about the people you have, how you’re led and how much you get it.”

– Steve Jobs, in Fortune, November 9, 1998

Special Note: the collaboration with Inti Students are a form of WIN-WIN partnership between FounderMethod and students.

I have a unique skill … I am uniquely LAZY & will keep on think of ways to find short cuts … … I ran through Steve Job’s quote like a million times and had an idea , “what if I can outsource my entire execution & operation to virtual Gen Y staffs … ?” since I don’t have any money nor I have any resources to start FounderMethod …

Finally, after 1 year of perfecting this skill, I am proud to have self-learn how to acquire the skills of virtually managing hundreds of Gen Y staffs to get the best out of them and to deliver work to me …

This Video is done by my virtual “staffs” or “talented students” … work done in 10 days time …

There’s “product innovation”, there’s  “business innovation” which I am eagerly self-learning those …

But I call this “operation innovation” , after acquiring this skill, I feel much more confident in going out there to expand my platform … Business guys out there, please comment if I am wrong at the terms I am using here …

For the past 6 weeks, I guided 66 Inti Subang Mass Communication Student on 14 different projects running simultaneously. This video is only 1 out of excellent projects delivered by the students …

group #5, I must say special thanks to them. They completed video teaser for FounderMethod that went viral (more than 300 views in less than 3 days) …

  • 1 day for concept planning & talent scouting
  • 1 day for video shooting
  • 2 days for editing & completion
  • 3 days to promote the video

I took time to study PowerPlan (which is a business and strategic course for FounderMethod paying member). What I extracted most from PowerPlan is Idea + Plan + Execution + Resource = Outcome

Breaking down this equation further… Well, I always dream of achieving BIG Ideas & BOMBASTIC Plans … But, I am too lazy to Execute nor I have any Resources (Staffs) or Money …

What I did was totally different … I partner with Inti International University in their Employer Relations project to get students to be the doing the “Execution + Resource” to my “Ideas + Plan” … and Walah, There’s Massive Outcome beyond my wildest dreams …

My Personal Thought of going through this project with the 66 inti students ?

I personally learn a lot from the Gen Y students … Companies often complain about Gen Y about their working attitude. However, I did not complain, I observed and understand them … I build online automation system that allow these Gen Y students to PERFORM their fullest potential and deliver great work for me …

The Gen Y students, if given the right tools (Google Apps or Whatsapp or Facebook etc) and the right virtual leader (the Lazy Evanna Phoon), is able to unleash their fullest potential and contribute tremendously … They are the FUTURE of our society and we must respect them for they have the wealth of talents and skills to excel and bring our world to a better place …

Technologies are just TOOLS, it has no effect if the leader and driver do not know how to OPTIMIZE the tool to be productive & efficient … And I have developed the rare skills of developing online automation system that allows thousands of virtual students to work hard and work smart for me … because I am super obsessed with Efficiency & Productivity … and I super love to Gen Y … They love my style of virtual leadership and I love their creative work … 

  • I do not offer consultancy services…
  • I do not do physical training or speaking …
  • I am simply too lazy …
  • I only share my knowledge ONLINE … it’s the only place where you can tap into the brain of the Lazy Evanna Phoon ya ?

    How about retail and service industries, how about hospitality industries, accounting and auditing….. there are many industries out there need them to put in at least 8 hours in their jobs, physically involving and interacting with human or work, not all jobs can be done online.

    Your suggestion only for your industry.

      tqtq for your comments … yes, you are right … if we are doing consultation related services, there’s no way you can do online because client pay us for our TIME … i am sharing this because there are certain routine task that if we put our minds and heart into it … can be automated and do it online ….. do it more efficiently …
      i believe hospitality, accounting & auditing will have some task that can be more productive & efficient ….. 🙂

      some industries are very resource intensive … i am also a big fan of setting up system so that it’s not a pain when staffs leaves the company … 😀 .. like accounting line, it’s a pain to train and re-train people … so, perhaps there’s a way to ensure that being a boss is less stressful … 😀
