We deployed Office 2007 to some of our power users last year and they 
should be able to help us when we covert every one else this summer.  We 
created a list of online training resources we liked and posted it on 
our internal web server (shown below).  We've also allowed people to 
volunteer to upgrade early and so far over a quarter of our 
faculty/staff/library machines have been converted to Office 2007 which 
helped everyone see that this is not an impossible migration.
