Q. I'm looking at rolling out Windows 7 and/or Office and need help on a training plan for users. Where's some free help?

A. Microsoft offers a site where you can walk through a step-by-step wizard that asks information about the products you're deploying, such as Windows 7 and Office 2010. It asks for the types of users you're planning for, the sort of information you want to communicate, the timeframes of communication, types of hardware, and common topics, as shown here.

Once you've made all your selections, a complete plan is generated, showing recommendations and timelines for training and communications. Below is a portion of the output, which you can get as an email in plain text or HTML, with all the links to the resources.
