It's time to stop fooling around with the appetizers and start on the meat of Microsoft Office Visio 2007. In one form or another many workers use Office Visio 2007 to share thoughts, and the sharing is through the diagrams they create.

You can apply the new themes feature to enhance your diagram.
Make no mistake, not all drawings and business diagrams fall together this way, but most business diagrams do.
