The Gantt Chart is one of the most popular techniques used in project management for scheduling, monitoring, and adjusting projects. 

The Gantt Chart shows you how activities and tasks are displayed against time, offering answers to critical questions like:

  • What needs to be done?

  •  When does a task start and when it's scheduled to be completed?

  •  Which activities overlap and what are the connections between tasks?

  •  Who is the person responsible for a task?
