Gantt Chart

A Gantt Chart is:  
  • Created in 1940 by Henry Grantt 
  • A way to monitor timelines. Is a graphical representation used in project management that shows the length of time tasks in the project.  
  What are the positive aspects of a Gantt Chart for an organization? Why does this tool apply to your CAS experience? Does this tool work for you? 
  • Help run the project more smoothly because you can see the progress (where you are, where you should be)
  • Is a visual representation of a “To-do list” that facilitates to see the order and who is responsible for each task
  • It demonstrates not only what tasks need to be completed but also the start and end time lines for each task.
  • Helps you plan resources, able to identify problems you might face
  • You can see interdependencies between tasks
  • Help with the planning phase of project, helps decide course of action and help monitor project
  • Which tasks depend on others
  • Keep stakeholders and anyone interested informed of progress, is also a communication tool 
  It will apply to my CAS experience because it will help Emily and I have an organized graphic representation of the tasks that need to be done. It will communicate my partner our progress and manage upcoming obstacles. It is also a large project with limited time, it can also help us manage our time. Keep Miss Amy informed and interested. This tool can work for me if it is used correctly and will keep me focused and responsible. Also since we are starting we can also take advantage of its way to facilitate the “planning phase” of our project.
