I have been asked to advertise this series of webcasts by Microsoft … looks like I’ve missed the first one!




IT Management, Process Management, HR Management… and lots more

Microsoft Office Visio 2007 makes it easy for IT and business professionals to visualize, explore, and communicate complex information. Go from complicated text and tables that are hard to understand to Visio diagrams that communicate information at a glance. Instead of static pictures, create data-connected Visio diagrams that display data, are easy to refresh, and dramatically increase your productivity. Use the wide variety of diagrams in Office Visio 2007 to understand, act on, and share information about organizational systems, resources, and processes throughout your enterprise.


Over the next six weeks, let Microsoft walk you through everything from the basic overview of Visio 2007 through to specialist application in various job roles like HR or Business Process

Things that Should be Easy
