MS Office 2010 Overview

Taming End User Angst:  Easing the Transition to MS Office 2010

The migration to MS Office 2010 is underway.  Microsoft has built new features into its next generation of office productivity applications that promise unprecedented improvements in end user efficiency and organizational effectiveness.  But cutting-edge software can only deliver as promised if end users know how to realize its full potential.

With Operation A.B.L.E.’s MS Office Transition Training, organizations can maximize return on their MS Office investment.  Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to curriculum development, we adapt our training engagements to balance the clients’ overall business objectives with the skills development needs of end users.

We offer courses in each of the MS Office 2010 applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook.  Classes can be scheduled at Operation A.B.L.E.’s computer labs at 131 Tremont Street, Boston, or on-site in a client’s own training facility.

Participants will learn to:

  • Master the complexities of MS Office 2010’s ribbon user interface
  • Understand the logic behind the new graphic user interface by alternating documents between versions Office 2003 & Office 2007/2010
  • Modify MS Word 2010 documents
  • Work with spreadsheets using MS Excel 2010
  • Create powerful slide presentations in MS PowerPoint 2010
  • Store information in an Access database and retrieve data by sort, find, filter and query features
  • Create, manage, and maintain e-mails, appointments, contacts, distribution lists, tasks, and notes in MS Outlook 2010

Participant benefits include:

  • Increased effectiveness and efficiency every day with a thorough understanding of Microsoft Office applications
  • Mastery of Microsoft’s universally accepted software, crucial in today’s business environment
  • Proficiency using Microsoft Office 2010 to express ideas, solve business problems, and connect with people
  • Ability to meet the challenges of the new software and work productively in a fast-moving environment


The length of each training engagement will depend on the need and number of trainees and the strategic objectives of the client.


Operation A.B.L.E. will develop a training proposal based on the specific requirements of the organization and the trainees.
