Why One Minute YM?

Making YM easier, one minute at a time


Our clients and partners recently started to see One Minute YM pop up in their in-boxes. You might be wondering why we started doing this.

1.YM is complex and constantly changing

2. Your time is valuable

3. It’s the best way to learn


At Starkweather, our goal is to get our clients as facile with YM as quickly as possible. To do that we spend time researching the best ways people learn.


Learning YM can be a tricky task because there is are so many capabilities, and people often get overwhelmed “cramming” as much YM information as they can during the implementation.


Moreover, if you don’t repeat tasks often enough, it’s easy to forget. That’s why we created our easy-to-follow SmartBooks. But to really learn, it’s best to have many short exposures to information. Thus, One Minute YM.


The scientific terms are “spaced practice” and “mass practice”. Spaced practice is many repetitions of smaller pieces of information. Mass practice is cramming as much as you can into one session. When people cram, they lose 80% of the information they learned in as little as two days. What a waste.


Our free One Minute YM videos cover different topics from basic YM to change management to YM tips & tricks. You can watch the video, as many times as you want, and contact us if you want to dive into that subject deeper. If you have something you’d like to see covered, let us know!
