In Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel, click the "Insert" tab to access a feature called SmartArt (below is a screenshot of this process using Word 2013). 

Within the categories of SmartArt graphics, you'll likely find whichever type of flow chart you need. 

You can add or delete boxes, change the shapes used, and edit colors and fonts.  Click [Text] and type in the text you want to appear in the specific box.


The official Microsoft Office website features various tutorials and instructions for how to create SmartArt.
