    I have been assigned the task to create an organizational flow chart for management.

    It has nothing to do with logistics, no numbers, formulas, computations.

    Essentially it is a job title and description for internal use. I am brainstorming ways to use a software to make a diagram that can be easily manipulated and interchangeable i.e. one position may share interchangeable roles so I can drag and drop one descriptor under another employers role etc.

    The catch is I want to be able to maneuver the chart without copy+paste. Rather, I can drag a text box from one job title and insert into another position.

    Microsoft PPT or Publisher comes to mind, but I am wondering if there are any free or open source software available to do this more efficiently? It has to be very dynamic.

    The way it was described to me was that the user interface was to be like that of the touch screen from Iron Man movie where you can drag and drop modules wherever you want.

    So imagine on your screen, a software like Word. The software displays 5 pages side by side populated with information. You can click on one page, drag a text box and drop onto page 6, from page 2.

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Pretty sure Visio is the program designed for this kind of stuff...but it is not included in most versions of office.

    Your IT department might have a few licenses floating around though.
