A Gantt chart, commonly used in project management, is one of the most popular and useful ways of showing activities (tasks or events) displayed against time. On the left of the chart is a list of the activities and along the top is a suitable time scale. Each activity is represented by a bar; the position and length of the bar reflects the start date, duration and end date of the activity. This allows you to see at a glance: What the various activities are When each activity begins and ends How long each activity is scheduled to last Where activities overlap with other activities, and by how much The start and end date of the whole project To summarize, a Gantt chart shows you what has to be done (the activities) and when (the schedule). Gantt Chart History. The first Gantt chart was devised in the mid 1890s by Karol Adamiecki, a Polish engineer who ran a steelworks in southern Poland and had become interested in management ideas and techniques. Some 15 years after Adamiecki, Henry Gantt, an American engineer and project management consultant, devised his own version of the chart and it was this that became widely known and popular in western countries. Consequently, it was Henry Gantt whose name was to become associated with charts of this type. Originally Gantt charts were prepared laboriously by hand; each time a project changed it was necessary to amend or redraw the chart and this limited their usefulness, continual change being a feature of most projects. Nowadays, however, with the advent of computers and project management software, Gantt charts can be created, updated and printed easily. Karol Adamiecki Henry Gantt Today, Gantt charts are most commonly used for tracking project schedules. For this it is useful to be able to show additional information about the various tasks or phases of the project, for example how the tasks relate to each other, how far each task has progressed, what resources are being used for each task and so on.

Henry Gantt, inventor of the Gantt chart A Gantt chart is a type of bar chart that illustrates a project schedule, named after its popularizer, Henry Gantt (1861–1919), who designed such a chart around the years 1910–1915.[1][2] Modern Gantt charts also show the dependency relationships between activities and the current schedule status. Contents. 1 Definition 2 Historical development 3 Example 4 Progress Gantt charts 5 Linked Gantt charts 6 See also 7 Citations 8 References 9 Further reading 10 External links Definition[edit]. A Gantt chart is a type of bar chart[3][4] that illustrates a project schedule.[5] This chart lists the tasks to be performed on the vertical axis, and time intervals on the horizontal axis.[3][6] The width of the horizontal bars in the graph shows the duration of each activity.[6][7] Gantt charts illustrate the start and finish dates of the terminal elements and summary elements of a project. Terminal elements and summary elements constitute the work breakdown structure of the project. Modern Gantt charts also show the dependency (i.e., precedence network) relationships between activities. Gantt charts can be used to show current schedule status using percent-complete shadings and a vertical "TODAY" line. Gantt charts are sometimes equated with bar charts.[7][8] Gantt charts are usually created initially using an early start time approach, where each task is scheduled to start immediately when its prerequisites are complete. This method maximizes the float time available for all tasks.[3] Historical development[edit]. Although widely used in project planning in the present day, Gantt charts were considered revolutionary when introduced.[9] The first known tool of this type was developed in 1896 by Karol Adamiecki, who called it a harmonogram.[10] Adamiecki did not publish his chart until 1931, however, and only in Polish, which limited both its adoption and recognition of his authorship. In 1912, Hermann Schürch [de] published what would be considered Gantt charts while discussing a construction project. It appears that Schürch's charts were not notable but rather routine in Germany at the time they were published.[11][12][13] The prior development leading to Schürch's work is unknown.[14] Unlike later Gantt charts, Schürch's charts did not display interdependencies, leaving them to be inferred by the reader. These were also static representations of a planned schedule.[15] The chart is named after Henry Gantt (1861–1919), who designed his chart around the years 1910–1915.[1][2] Gantt originally created his tool for systematic, routine operations. He designed this visualization tool to more easily measure productivity levels of employees and gauge which employees were under- or over-performing. Gantt also frequently included graphics and other visual indicators in his charts to track performance. [16] One of the first major applications of Gantt charts was by the United States during World War I, at the instigation of General William Crozier.[17] The earliest Gantt charts were drawn on paper and therefore had to be redrawn entirely in order to adjust to schedule changes. For many years, project managers used pieces of paper or blocks for Gantt chart bars so they could be adjusted as needed.[18] Gantt's collaborator Walter Polakov introduced Gantt charts to the Soviet Union in 1929 when he was working for the Supreme Soviet of the National Economy. They were used in developing the First Five Year Plan, supplying Russian translations to explain their use.[19][20] In the 1980s, personal computers allowed widespread creation of complex and elaborate Gantt charts. The first desktop applications were intended mainly for project managers and project schedulers. With the advent of the Internet and increased collaboration over networks at the end of the 1990s, Gantt charts became a common feature of web-based applications, including collaborative groupware.[citation needed] By 2012, almost all Gantt charts were made by software which can easily adjust to schedule changes.[18] In 1999, Gantt charts were identified as "one of the most widely used management tools for project scheduling and control".[3] Example[edit]. In the following tables there are seven tasks, labeled a through g. Some tasks can be done concurrently (a and b) while others cannot be done until their predecessor task is complete (c and d cannot begin until a is complete). Additionally, each task has three time estimates: the optimistic time estimate (O), the most likely or normal time estimate (M), and the pessimistic time estimate (P). The expected time (TE) is estimated using the beta probability distribution for the time estimates, using the formula (O + 4M + P) ÷ 6. Activity Predecessor Time estimates (in days) Expected time (TE) Opt. (O) Normal (M) Pess. (P) a — 2 4 6 4.00 b — 3 5 9 5.33 c a 4 5 7 5.17 d a 4 6 10 6.33 e b, c 4 5 7 5.17 f d 3 4 8 4.50 g e 3 5 8 5.17 Once this step is complete, one can draw a Gantt chart or a network diagram. A Gantt chart created using Microsoft Project (MSP). Note (1) the critical path is in red, (2) the slack is the black lines connected to non-critical activities, (3) since Saturday and Sunday are not work days and are thus excluded from the schedule, some bars on the Gantt chart are longer if they cut through a weekend. Progress Gantt charts[edit]. In a progress Gantt chart, tasks are shaded in proportion to the degree of their completion: a task that is 60% complete would be 60% shaded, starting from the left. A vertical line is drawn at the time index when the progress Gantt chart is created, and this line can then be compared with shaded tasks. If everything is on schedule, all task portions left of the line will be shaded, and all task portions right of the line will not be shaded. This provides a visual representation of how the project and its tasks are ahead or behind schedule.[21] Linked Gantt charts[edit]. Linked Gantt charts contain lines indicating the dependencies between tasks. However, linked Gantt charts quickly become cluttered in all but the simplest cases. Critical path network diagrams are superior to visually communicate the relationships between tasks.[22] Nevertheless, Gantt charts are often preferred over network diagrams because Gantt charts are easily interpreted without training, whereas critical path diagrams require training to interpret.[8] Gantt chart software typically provides mechanisms to link task dependencies, although this data may or may not be visually represented.[3] Gantt charts and network diagrams are often used for the same project, both being generated from the same data by a software application.[3] See also[edit].

On a Gantt chart you can easily see: The start date of the project schedule What the project tasks are Which team member is working on each task When tasks start and finish How long each task will take How tasks group together, overlap and link with each other Task dependencies, milestones and the critical path of your project The finish date of the project The vertical axis of a Gantt chart shows the tasks that need to be completed, while the horizontal axis represents the project timeline. As you input tasks, their start dates, their end dates and their dependencies, bars on the stacked bar chart will populate, which represent task durations. This happens automatically if you use a project management tool equipped with a Gantt chart maker. Most Gantt diagrams are created in Excel or with project management software, which is sometimes referred to as Gantt chart software. If you choose to make Gantt charts with Gantt chart software, instead of using an Excel Gantt chart template, then you’ll be able to do more than see task durations and due dates. With Gantt chart software, you can create a work breakdown structure, assign tasks to team members, track project progress in real time and drag and drop timelines to instantly update your project schedule. What Is Gantt Chart Software? Watch the video below for a quick introduction to Gantt chart software and its benefits. Once computers introduced new ways of working, project managers found they could save time in creating and updating their Gantt charts. Gantt chart software, also called project planning, project management, or project scheduling software, was created to automate the process to support more advanced Gantt requirements like creating task dependencies, adding milestones or identifying the critical path of a project plan. Many project managers traditionally used local desktop programs like Microsoft Project—and many still do. But today, project management software has moved online, enabling anyone to create shareable and collaborative Gantt charts and projects plans. Desktop vs. Online Gantt Chart Software. Project management software has radically improved the way teams work. Desktop Gantt chart software is best suited for one manager who likes to plan project individually, without a need to easily share the project plan with team members or stakeholders. Similar to managing projects in Microsoft Excel or even Word, desktop Gantt chart software offers one local version per user license. It becomes hard to share large Gantt or plan file sizes without the enterprise integration of a file sharing hub like Microsoft Sharepoint. Even with Sharepoint, other people you want to share the file with also require the desktop license of the project planning software, which can further increase costs. Online project management or Gantt chart software supports ease of sharing and collaborative project planning. Because the software is 100% online, anyone you invite can not only see your project plan, but update their tasks and attach files right to the tasks they’re working on in real time. And the costs of online project management tools are dramatically less than the desktop versions, because there’s no costly server installations, integrations and associated license costs for each user. ProjectManager.com lets users add comments and files to a Gantt chart—Learn more. Ultimately, most project managers find the decision to move online with your project planning & Gantt charts is a no brainer, since the productivity gains far outweigh the headaches of older desktop ways of working. The Benefits of Online Gantt Chart Software. Many people are used to creating task lists in Excel or other spreadsheet tools. They might have created a simple Gantt chart, like we have offered in this free Gantt chart template. This works fine when you’re creating a task list of activities for one person to view. When you want to share your project timeline with more people, then it becomes so much easier to create the Gantt chart online. Tasks update whenever anyone changes their % complete or adds a comment or attaches a file in real time. In addition, as a project manager, you can drag and drop project tasks to easily make changes to the project schedule in real time. What Is a Gantt Chart Used for in Project Management? The uses of a Gantt chart, as you can see by the sheer number of teams and roles who can benefit from using Gantt charts, are many. Here are just a few: Plan & Schedule Projects Plan & Schedule Tasks Plan & Schedule Tasks across multiple projects View Tasks Over Time Plan in Sprints Team Collaboration Resource Management Scheduling Teams’ Work Determining Planned versus Actual Timelines on a Project Must-Have Gantt Chart Software Features. While no two Gantt charts are the same, there are key features that you will need to get the most out of your Gantt chart tool:MilestonesLink TasksSummary TasksCollaborateFile SharingTask ProgressMilestones. Milestones are represented by a diamond symbol on the Gantt and have no duration. A milestone marks the end of a piece of work, task sequence or phase of the project. They are often fixed dates or important dates on your project schedule that you need to be aware of. Read more: Learn how to use milestones in your scheduling. Dependencies. These show which tasks are linked together. Links are shown with lines on the Gantt chart, and the arrow points to the task that comes next. Dependencies can be set up as start-to-finish, start-to-start, finish-to-finish or finish-to-start. Read more: Learn how to manage task dependencies. Summary Tasks. A summary task is a skinny ‘umbrella’ task above various individual tasks. It is a good way of grouping activities together, especially as part of a project stage or phase. You can ‘roll up’ your tasks (in other words, hide them from view) so that only the summary task is shown. The summary task also displays the task progress with shading, so you can view the progress of all tasks underneath in that one bar. Collaboration. A Gantt chart without collaboration is just a static plan. It’s a nice to have, but it isn’t helping you advance the work your team is doing. Be sure you can chat or comment around tasks to keep the workflow documented. Your team will then get alerts every time a task has been updated, so they know when new activity has occurred. File Sharing. It’s important as you collaborate to also be able to attach files, images, videos or other notes to document the task progress and also to keep all the task information together. That way, you always know where to look to find the file related to the work you’re doing. Planned vs. Actual Progress. This is represented in a couple different ways on the Gantt. Shading on the bar indicates how complete the planned work is. When the bar is totally shaded, the task is finished. You can also see just a view of the actual progress anytime in the settings. Don’t forget to set a baseline for the best tracking experience. There are two halves to most Gantt chart tools you see online today. On the left is a task list column or grid that lists task names and info. On the right there’s a stacked bar chart where each task has a corresponding bar that runs horizontally. The task bars start on the date that the work is scheduled to start. The longer the bar, the longer the task will take. How to Make a Gantt Chart. Whether you choose to draw your Gantt charts, use project management software or download a Microsoft Excel Gantt chart template, you’ll need to follow these basic steps: Make a task list with all the tasks that are needed to complete your project Define the start and end dates for each task Create a project timeline based on the duration of tasks Identify task dependencies Fill out the bar chart timeline with your tasks Assign tasks to your team members Set milestones Identify the critical path Now that we have covered the information that you’ll need on how to make a Gantt chart, let’s go through the two most popular methods, project management software and Excel. How to Make a Gantt Chart in ProjectManager.com. It’s easy for anyone to create a Gantt chart online in ProjectManager. You can import a task list from a CSV file, an Excel Gantt chart template, a Microsoft Project file or create one from scratch. Watch as your Gantt bars populate instantly. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating an online Gantt chart with ProjectManager: 1. Create a new project. When you first log in, you simply enter in a project name and select “Create”. 2. Add tasks. As you add tasks, the default date will be today, and since you haven’t added a longer due date than today, the tasks appear in the Gantt chart tool to the right as circles, representing that they start and end today. The dotted line represents today’s date. 3. Add due dates. As you extend the start and end dates, the task bars on the Gantt chart view extend too, showing you how long each task will take. How to Create a Gantt Chart in Excel. Creating a Gantt chart from scratch using Excel is a long and complicated process that will require you to do lots of formatting and use advanced formulas. Here’s a Gantt chart tutorial you can watch. However, following this tutorial is difficult for the average user and requires advanced Excel skills. On top of being a labor-intensive process, Excel was not designed to make Gantt charts and therefore lacks many features. Here are the main disadvantages of using Excel to make Gantt charts: Your Gantt chart will not be responsive: it’s just a static document that must be updated manually every time you need to make changes to your project schedule. Excel files must be shared with your team members every time changes are made to the document, which might lead to confusion. You can’t collaborate with your team in real time using Excel Gantt charts. You can’t link task dependencies, set milestones or identify the critical path. If you’re not ready to create a Gantt chart in Excel from the ground up, but you still want to try out Excel Gantt charts, you can use a Gantt chart template. Gantt Chart Templates. You’ll find a myriad of Gantt chart templates online, but most of them fall into two main categories; Excel templates and templates made for specific project management tools such as ProjectManager or Microsoft Project. Luckily with ProjectManager, you can import Microsoft Project, CSV and Excel files to create top-notch Gantt charts that you can use along with all its project management features. Try our Gantt chart template for Excel and import it to our software with our 30-day free trial. Gantt Chart Tips. How to Use a Gantt Chart to Collaborate with Your Team. Despite the rumors, it’s easy to onboard your team with most online project management tools. Once you have invited your team members to the new Gantt chart tool, you can start improving task management in a couple of different ways. You can coordinate a group call to build out the project plan together, right on the Gantt chart view. Or, you can pre-populate the list of tasks into the Gantt, either with an easy import function or cutting and pasting the list, so the tasks and assignments are already populated when your team hops on a call. Here’s how you can easily start collaborating with your team: 1. Assign team members to tasks You can easily assign or re-assign tasks to team members based on their availability in real time. When people are assigned to tasks, their name appears above the task bar on the Gantt chart. 2. Customize Gantt Charts You can customize your Gantt charts in whatever way suits your team. Here, you can see that different people are represented by different colors on the Gantt task bars, so it’s easy to see at a glance who is responsible for which tasks. Others might use colors on the stacked bar chart to represent different phases of a project or different teams responsible for a group of tasks. 3. Attach Files, Comments or Notes When your team works collaboratively on an online Gantt chart maker, you can do so much more than just plan tasks. You can add images, videos, links, notes or comments right at the task-level, so all the relevant task work is captured and easily accessible in one place. 4. Get Email Alerts Your team can customize email alerts in a way that works for them. That way, whenever their tasks have been updated on the Gantt diagram or anywhere else in the system, your team is instantly alerted to that change. 5. See What’s New All the updates on the Gantt diagram can be seen in one view on your Activity page. You can see what the team is working on and when tasks have been updated. Team collaboration is easy with online Gantt charts. For more tips on how to use a Gantt chart maker, check out our project management expert Jennifer Bridges in this video. How to Set up Advanced Features in Your Gantt Chart. Gantt Chart Columns The most common Gantt chart columns are: Task name: Unsurprisingly, this is a description of the task. Planned start date: This is the date that you aim to start working on the task. Planned duration: This is a single number that reflects how many days there are between the planned start date and the planned finish date. It’s based on working days, so if a task is planned to take a week it will reflect 5 (working) days on the project schedule. Planned effort: How many hours of work the task will take within the duration. Think about painting a wall. It might only take you an hour to paint the first coat but then you’ve got to leave it two hours to dry before the next coat. Then you paint again and leave it to dry again. That’s only two hours of actual painting (effort) but six hours in total (duration). Percent complete: A figure, mostly always based on an educated guess by the person doing the task, of how much work they have done and how much is still to do Pro Tip: Beware of tasks that stay at 80% complete for too long. This is a sign that the task owner doesn’t really know how much work there is still to do. When you ask for updates, the percent complete should move up each time unless no work has genuinely taken place. Monitoring percent complete is a good way to get an early warning about tasks that might run late. Assigned: This column tells you the name of the person, people, or resource type (e.g. Developer) who has been allocated to work on the task. At the start of the project you may only have resource type but as you go through you should be able to replace this with the names of actual team members. Task Dependencies: You can also show the task dependencies in number form. Choose the “Linked From” column in the column settings. This is often an easier way of quickly finding out the critical path and which task links where. Use the numbers in this column to track back the task dependencies – it can be faster than trying to trace a spidery line on the Gantt chart. Still not sure about creating links between tasks? Our project management expert, Jennifer Bridges, PMP, explains it all in this video: These are the most common columns you’ll find in project management software, but you can also set your Gantt chart columns to show you virtually anything you want including actual start and finished dates, planned and actual cost and Work Breakdown Structure numbering. How to Import Gantt Chart Excel Templates. If you’ve been using Microsoft Excel to create Gantt charts from templates, it might be daunting to let go of that work to switch to online project management software. It’s easy to import Excel task lists into online tools to instant populate the online Gantt chart. 1. Find the file you want to import. You can import simple task lists, Excel files, MS Project files or CSV files. 2. Click “Import.” It’s easiest if you match columns in your file with the destination files. The software will help you do this. Use our handy downloadable Excel Gantt chart template in the popup window to easily map your columns. Or when you upload your own files with custom columns, the software will guide you to map your columns. 3. See your tasks represented on the Gantt chart View. The Gantt diagram auto-populates based on the dates you have added on your task list. If there are no due dates, then the Gantt view will populate with small dots. Simply click on a task bubble and drag to extend its due date on the Gantt charts. Just like that you’re scheduling your project online! Online Gantt Charts FAQs. Gantt Charts History. The Gantt chart was named after Henry Gantt, and many think he was the one who first had the idea of project planning on bar charts. Well, that’s not entirely true. Left: Henry Gantt | Right: Karol Adamiecki Karol Adamiecki devised the first Gantt diagram back in 1896. He was a Polish engineer turned management professor who came up with the idea of displaying processes visually so that he could make it easier to see production schedules. (He did most of his work in the steel industry.) He called it the harmonogram (a much better word) but Adamiecki published his articles on it in Polish and Russian, so the English-speaking world didn’t know much about it. Henry Gantt had the same idea as Karol Adamiecki, but about 15 years later. In 1910, Gantt started planning visually with bar charts to allow supervisors in the steel works to see if production was on track or behind schedule. It was Gantt’s name that got attached to this way of project planning, but today it’s generally recognized that Adamiecki had the idea first. Who Uses a Gantt Chart? Today, nearly everyone can use a Gantt chart to help them visualize their tasks. Because all the difficult work is now done by project management software, anyone can just create a simple task list, add start and end dates, and the software does the work instantly of displaying your tasks over a project timeline. Gantt Chart Users by Role Gantt charts are effective tools for these roles: Project Managers General Managers Team Leaders Operations Managers Scheduling managers Work Managers Marketing Managers CEOs & CTOs … and frankly anyone who wants an instant view of a project timeline. It used to be that Gantt charts were the exclusive tool of formally trained project managers. These were people planning complex projects, or waterfall projects, of all different types: construction, engineering, military, manufacturing, infrastructure, IT and more. Creating long task lists and complex project schedules with lots of moving parts, required training in the art and science of task management, critical path analysis, baselining and so on. While still considered the purview of project managers, today with the wide range of project management software and Gantt chart tools, anyone might be found to be using Gantt charts online. Gantt Chart Users by Team. Because of the collaborative nature of online Gantt chart applications, more and more teams use them to plan and track all kinds of work together. Gantt charts can be used by all kinds of teams, such as: IT & Dev Teams Project Management Teams PMOs Marketing Teams Professional Services Teams Engineering & Architectural Teams Construction Teams Manufacturing Teams Product Development Teams Remote Teams Telecommunications Teams Healthcare Teams Public Works Teams Oil & Gas Industry teams Government Teams Whereas a project used to have a single project manager leading a single team for a single project, now many people across the organization manage projects with multiple teams of people. And many of those people are working projects under different project managers. Today’s project teams often need to plan tasks and manage resources in multiple projects across different teams, too. It’s important to make sure your Gantt chart tools can support resource management, workload management, and task management across projects. How Does the Gantt Know When the Team is Working? Planned duration and effort, and the overall start and finish times take working time into account. The Gantt chart software pulls working time information from the resource working hours that you set. This gives you the option to change the available working time for each team member, which can be handy if you have people who aren’t able to work the standard 8-hour day exclusively on your project. You can also change working time for everyone, for example if you’re closing the office for a staff event or want to make sure that no one is scheduled to work on a bank holiday. ProjectManager.com’s Dashboard Is Online Gantt Chart Software Secure? Many people debating the pros and cons of online versus desktop Gantt chart software wonder about the security of online project plans. Rest assured, most companies offer bank-level security and encryption with online project management software and have multiple security protocols in place to secure data and data recovery. For more information about security at ProjectManager.com, visit our Security page. Can I Link Tasks to Risks and Issues? Yes. You can link tasks to risks, issues and changes which makes it easy to navigate in the software and to highlight when a potential problem might need your attention. You can set up columns to display linked tasks and risks with one click. Can I Customize my Gantt Chart? There are many ways to customize the ProjectManager.com Gantt chart to suit your way of working. If you don’t want all the default options to show – or if you want even more options on display, navigate to the Gantt chart settings of your project management software and select what you want to see. One of the easiest and most common things to fiddle with is the division of time that is displayed on the Gantt chart. There are two ‘levels’ of time displayed, normally the week and then the day. You can change the top tier to show weeks, months, quarters or even years and make the lower tier reflect the smaller division of time. You can also color-code tasks, shade out non-working time and personalize other elements to differentiate by team, phase or anything else you want. How Do I Print a Gantt Chart? With care! Gantt charts are often difficult to print because they stretch horizontally over several pages. You used to often see project schedules printed and taped together then hung on the wall, but today most teams try to save the paper and work as far as possible online. Of course, sometimes you’ll need to print out your Gantt chart, or at least a summary of it. Here are 5 tips: Print it all on one page if possible. If that makes the text too small to read then Change the time divisions so you contract the overall project timeline (and therefore size) as much as possible. For example, if your display is set to show every day, change it so that the time slots shown are weekly or even monthly. That will make the stacked bar chart part of the Gantt much shorter, so it doesn’t print on so many pages. Roll up your tasks, especially if they are already complete. Use print preview: it’s annoying to print a lot of pages and then realize you made a mistake! Check it out first. Print page numbers if you can, so that you can put the Gantt chart together again if it is on several pages. The best way to get comfortable using a Gantt chart is to actually create one. Create a project in your scheduling software and play around with it. Practice using the different settings to see which columns give you the information that you want on your project schedule. Your test project file is also handy if you want to try out a new feature or view before you try it on a ‘real’ project schedule. The more you use Gantt charts, the easier they will become and the more confident you’ll get at using them.     Gantt Chart Resources.

Definition from APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition  📖   A Gantt chart is a project management tool assisting in the planning and scheduling of projects of all sizes, although they are particularly useful for simplifying complex projects. Project management timelines and tasks are converted into a horizontal bar chart, showing start and end dates, as well as dependencies, scheduling and deadlines, including how much of the task is completed per stage and who is the task owner. This is useful to keep tasks on track when there is a large team and multiple stakeholders when the scope changes. As it's in a bar chart format it is possible to check on progress with a quick glance. You can easily see: a visual display of the whole project, timelines and deadlines of all tasks, relationships and dependencies between the various activities, project phases Project management solutions that integrate Gantt charts give managers visibility into team workloads, as well as current and future availability, which allows for more accurate scheduling. Gantt charts have been around for nearly a century, having been invented by Henry Gantt, an American mechanical engineer, around 1910. History of the Gantt chart. It is difficult to envisage how a modern project would be managed without at some point creating a chart of tasks to be done in delivering the project’s declared benefits. One of the most enduring types of chart is the Gantt chart. Read more Learn more. Register to receive our latest newsletters and information about new events and resources. Register now How to use a Gantt chart. The underlying concept of a Gantt chart is to map out which tasks can be done in parallel and which need to be done sequentially. If we combine this with the project resources we can explore the trade-off between the scope (doing more or less work), cost (using more or less resources) and the time scales for the project. By adding more resources or reducing the scope the project manager can see the effect on the end date. To create a chart you need to know all of the individual tasks required to complete the project, an estimate of how long each task will take and which tasks are dependent on others. The very process of pulling this information together helps a project manager focus on the essential parts of the project and begin to establish a realistic timeframe for completion. In summary:. When you set up a Gantt chart, you need to think through all of the tasks involved in your project and divide them into manageable components. Then decide who will be responsible for each task and delegate to the team. Identify task relationships and decide on the completion date sequence for each task, showing the expected time duration of the whole project and the sub tasks. A Gantt chart will show the tasks in a sequential order and display task dependencies (ie. how one task relates to another). Determine and allocate your resources. Anticipate the risks and problems you may encounter and create a contingency plan for potential problems. Planning, scheduling monitoring and control. This book offers practical guidance on all planning aspects of preparing to undertake a project, executing a project, controlling its delivery to budget, time and quality, and delivering it safely. Shop now Why use a Gantt chart? A Gantt chart is used for the following activities: Establish the initial project schedule - who is going to do what, when and how long will it take. Allocate resources - ensure everyone knows who is responsible for what. Make project adjustments - the initial plan will need many adjustments. Monitor and report progress - helps you stay on schedule. Control and communicate the schedule - clear visuals for stakeholders and participants. Display milestones - shows key events. Identify and report problems - As everything is depicted visually you can immediately see what should have been achieved by a certain date and, if the project is behind schedule, you can take action to bring it back on course. Possible downfalls:. As Paul Naybour explains in his blog, Gantt charts are not perfect and can become overly complex with too many dependencies and activities. It is better to produce a clear and simple plan that shows the main work packages in summary, than a plan with so much detail that the overall impression of project progress is lost.  Gantt charts are also not good at showing the relative priorities of individual tasks and the resources expended on a task. They can clearly show the elapsed time of a task but don't easily communicate how many people may be needed to complete it. This is where using additional techniques such as a precedence diagram (sometimes called a PERT chart), for instance, becomes useful. APM Body of Knowledge.

It typically includes two sections: the left side outlines a list of tasks, while the right side has a timeline with schedule bars that visualize work. The Gantt chart can also include the start and end dates of tasks, milestones, dependencies between tasks, and assignees. To keep up with the demands of modern software development, roadmap tools like Jira Software include features like a collapsible task structure and resource management panels. These roadmap tools help teams maintain a coherent project strategy despite the iterative nature of the software development process. Origins of the Gantt chart . In the early part of the 20th century, Henry Gantt revolutionized project management with Gantt charts. At that time, they were written out on pieces of paper. With the rise of computers in the 1980s, Gantt charts became increasingly complex and elaborate. Today, Gantt charts are still one of the most widely used project management tools. Today, Gantt chart tools are often referred to as roadmap tools. Jira includes two roadmap tools to create Gantt charts for your projects: Roadmaps, which creates plans around Jira issues assigned to a team, and Advanced Roadmaps, which does the same thing across teams and organizations. Roadmaps Advanced Roadmaps What is a Gantt chart used for? . Project managers use Gantt charts for three main reasons: Build and manage a comprehensive project . Gantt charts visualize the building blocks of a project and organize it into smaller, more manageable tasks. The resulting small tasks are scheduled on the Gantt chart's timeline, along with dependencies between tasks, assignees, and milestones. Determine logistics and task dependencies . Gantt charts can be employed to keep an eye on the logistics of a project. Task dependencies ensure that a new task can only start once another task is completed. If a task is delayed (it happens to the best of us), then dependent issues are automatically rescheduled. This can be especially useful when planning in a multi-team environment. Monitor progress of a project . As teams log time towards issues in your plan, you can monitor the health of your projects and make adjustments as necessary. Your Gantt chart can include release dates, milestones, or other important metrics to track your project’s progress. The benefits of using a Gantt chart . There are two main reasons why Gantt charts are loved throughout the project management world. They make it easier to create complicated plans, especially those that involve multiple teams and changing deadlines. Gantt charts help teams to plan work around deadlines and properly allocate resources. Projects planners also use Gantt charts to maintain a bird’s eye view of projects. They depict, among other things, the relationship between the start and end dates of tasks, milestones, and dependent tasks. Modern Gantt chart programs such as Jira Software with Roadmaps and Advanced Roadmaps synthesize information and illustrate how choices impact deadlines. Gantt charts in waterfall vs. agile planning . Gantt charts can be a powerful tool for both the waterfall or agile methodologies. Waterfall . The waterfall model of project planning follows a linear approach where stakeholder and customer requirements are collected at the beginning of the project. From that, project managers create a sequential project plan, complete with milestones and deadlines. Every piece of the project relies on the completion of preceding tasks. This is favored by teams that focus on process (such as construction or manufacturing) and less on ideation or problem-solving as the steps need to be planned out in advance. Gantt charts are typically preferred by project managers using waterfall. They determine a project schedule by breaking projects into manageable chunks of work and assigning start and end dates. It’s also helpful in identifying important milestones in your project. Milestones are accomplishments that teams should achieve on or ahead of schedule. They are optional but recommended. Agile . On the other hand, the agile model of project planning values flexibility and adaptability. Instead of creating a full timeline with set dates, agile teams break projects into smaller iterations (also known as sprints). At the beginning of a sprint, a team plans their work against the goals of the project over the course of the next two weeks. Once that sprint is over, the accomplishments and developments from it help to create the plan for the next sprint. A Gantt chart can show how changing one task has the potential to impact the plan or the product roadmap. For agile teams, this is essential since stakeholder feedback is a large part of the methodology. Using Gantt charts . Gantt charts remain an important project management tool throughout various industries. At the end of the second decade of the 21st century, the Project Management Institute concluded that a mere 11 percent of organizations were fully agile. Most organizations employ waterfall project management methodologies (usually at higher management level) in addition to agile methodology. This is called a hybrid approach. If you happen to think in 'dates and deadlines' then you're probably among those that need timeline-based Gantt charts. Jira Software comes with two different roadmapping features, each with a slightly different focus. Jira Roadmaps is designed to track work assigned to a single team while Advanced Roadmaps is designed for larger, cross-organization project planning. Project-specific charts - Jira Roadmaps .

First, download the Excel gantt chart template, then watch the video above.How to create a gantt chart in Excel. Want to learn how to build an Excel gantt chart from scratch? This step-by-step tutorial will guide you through how to do a gantt chart in Excel.Please note that we performed the following steps in Excel 2016, but the basic workflow should be the same in any version of Excel with minor changes.Prepare the Excel worksheet for your gantt chartInsert a stacked bar chartFormat the gantt chart and its dataChange the colors of your task bars1. Prepare the Excel worksheet for your gantt chart. Create columns for Task Name, Start Date, End Date, and Duration, and fill those cells with information from your project.Then, format the columns as the following:Task Name column = textStart Date and End Date = formatted as a dateDuration column = numberTIP: It’s best to have the Duration field calculate the appropriate duration of the task based on the start and end dates. This is a simple formula. In this case, it’s =D2-C2. If you started in different cells in your worksheet, you’ll need to adjust this formula accordingly.Place your mouse on the right corner of E2 until you see a black + sign and double-click or drag your mouse down to paste the formula in the remaining cells in column E.2. Insert a ‘Stacked Bar Chart’ from the Insert menu. Insert the chart anywhere in the worksheet, then right-click and choose Select Data.Click the plus under the Legend entries section to add the first data set. Name it "Start Date," and then click on the Y values field. Now select the data in the Start Date column.Add a second entry for “Duration,” and select the Duration column.Click the Select Data Source button in the Horizontal Axis Labels field, then select the entire Task column.3. Format the Excel gantt chart and its data. The first thing you may notice is that the dates in the horizontal axis aren't actually dated. Our Excel gantt chart also covers much more time than we need. Let’s get rid of all that extra time first.The first task in the project starts on 7/25/16, so there’s no need for our project to show anything before then. Copy 7/25/16 into a cell, and format that cell as a number rather than a date. Excel stores dates as numbers, and you can see that 7/25/16 translates to 42576.00.Now highlight the horizontal axis, right-click, and select Format Axis. Under Bounds, there are fields for Minimum and Maximum. These are the first and last “dates” in the chart. If we change the minimum value to 42576.00 and hit enter, all that extra time will disappear from the beginning of our chart.To make the correct dates, go down to the Number section, and change the category from Number to Date. Now the horizontal axis will show us readable dates.Highlight the vertical axis, right-click, and choose Format Axis to put the tasks in the right order. Tick the Categories in reverse order checkbox. This also moves the date axis to the top of the chart where it’s a little more useful for us.Click on one of the blue bars to select all of them. Then go over to the paint bucket, expand the Fill section, and select No fill to remove the blue bars that precede our task start dates.4. Change the colors of the task bars in your Excel gantt chart (Optional). Click on a single bar twice. Don’t double-click it—click it once to highlight all the bars in that color, then click it again to highlight a single bar. Go over to the paint bucket, and choose the color you want from the color fill options. Repeat this process for the rest of the bars in your newly made gantt chart to change their colors.Congratulations! You’ve created your very own gantt chart in Excel.

Think about how challenging it would be to juggle a dozen balls at once. You'd have to keep your eye on all of them, and know when to catch each one. If you missed just one, this could spoil your whole performance. Project management is similar to this. To complete a project successfully, you must control a large number of activities, and ensure that they're completed on schedule. If you miss a deadline or finish a task out of sequence, there could be knock-on effects on the rest of the project. It could deliver late as a result, and cost a lot more. That's why it's helpful to be able to see everything that needs to be done, and know, at a glance, when each activity needs to be completed.

This gives you an instant overview of a project, its associated tasks, and when these need to be finished. In this article, we'll look at why they are so useful, and we'll see how you can use them to organize projects and keep your team informed of progress. Origins of the Tool. In the late 1800s, Polish engineer Karol Adamiecki developed a visual work flow chart that he called a "harmonogram." In around 1910, Henry Gantt, a management consultant and engineer, took Adamiecki's concept to the next stage. His chart was designed to help manufacturing supervisors see whether their work was on, ahead of, or behind schedule, and it formed the foundation of the tool we use today. Why Use Gantt Charts? When you set up a Gantt chart, you need to think through all of the tasks involved in your project. As part of this process, you'll work out who will be responsible for each task, how long each task will take, and what problems your team may encounter. This detailed thinking helps you ensure that the schedule is workable, that the right people are assigned to each task, and that you have workarounds for potential problems before you start. They also help you work out practical aspects of a project, such as the minimum time it will take to deliver, and which tasks need to be completed before others can start. Plus, you can use them to identify the critical path – the sequence of tasks that must individually be completed on time if the whole project is to deliver on time. Finally, you can use them to keep your team and your sponsors informed of progress. Simply update the chart to show schedule changes and their implications, or use it to communicate that key tasks have been completed. Creating a Gantt Chart. You can see an example in figure 1, below: Figure 1 – A Gantt chart.   (Click here to expand this diagram.) To create one for your project, follow these steps, using our example as a guide. Step 1: Identify Essential Tasks. Gantt charts don't give useful information unless they include all of the activities needed for a project or project phase   to be completed. So, to start, list all of these activities. Use a work breakdown structure   if you need to establish what the tasks are. Then, for each task, note its earliest start date and its estimated duration   . Example. Your organization has won a tender to create a new "Software as a Service" product, and you're in charge of the project. You decide to use a Gantt chart to organize all of the necessary tasks, and to calculate the likely overall timescale for delivery. You start by listing all of the activities that have to take place, and you estimate how long each task should take to complete. Your list looks as follows: Task Length A. High level analysis 1 week B. Selection of server hosting 1 day C. Configuration of server 2 weeks D. Detailed analysis of core modules 2 weeks E. Detailed analysis of supporting modules 2 weeks F. Development of core modules 3 weeks G. Development of supporting modules 3 weeks H. Quality assurance of core modules 1 week I. Quality assurance of supporting modules 1 week J. Initial client internal training 1 day K. Development and QA of accounting reporting 1 week L. Development and QA of management reporting 1 week M. Development of management information system 1 week N. Client internal user training 1 week Step 2: Identify Task Relationships. The chart shows the relationship between the tasks in a project. Some tasks will need to be completed before you can start the next one, and others can't end until preceding ones have ended. For example, if you're creating a brochure, you need to finish the design before you can send it to print. Finding This Article Useful?

Read our Privacy Policy These dependent activities are called "sequential" or "linear" tasks. Other tasks will be "parallel" – i.e. they can be done at the same time as other tasks. You don't have to do these in sequence, but you may sometimes need other tasks to be finished first. So, for example, the design of your brochure could begin before the text has been edited (although you won't be able to finalize the design until the text is perfect.) Identify which of your project's tasks are parallel, and which are sequential. Where tasks are dependent on others, note down the relationship between them. This will give you a deeper understanding of how to organize your project, and it will help when you start scheduling activities on the chart. Note:. In Gantt charts, there are three main relationships between sequential tasks: Finish to Start (FS) – FS tasks can't start before a previous (and related) task is finished. However, they can start later. Start to Start (SS) – SS tasks can't start until a preceding task starts. However, they can start later. Finish to Finish (FF) – FF tasks can't end before a preceding task ends. However, they can end later. A fourth type, Start to Finish (SF), is very rare. Tip 1:. Tasks can be sequential and parallel at the same time – for example, two tasks (B and D) may be dependent on another one (A), and may be completed at the same time. Task B is sequential in that it follows on from A, and it is parallel, with respect to D. Tip 2:. To minimize delivery times, you'll need to do as much work in parallel as you sensibly can. You also need to keep the scope   of the project as small as possible. Example. Task Length Type* Dependent on... A. High level analysis 1 week S   B. Selection of server hosting 1 day S A C. Configuration of server 2 weeks S B D. Detailed analysis of core modules 2 weeks S, P to B, C A E. Detailed analysis of supporting modules 2 weeks S, P to F D F. Development of core modules 3 weeks S, P to E D G. Development of supporting modules 3 weeks S, P to H, J E H. Quality assurance of core modules 1 week S, P to G F I. Quality assurance of supporting modules 1 week S G J. Initial client internal training 1 day S, P to G C,H K. Development and QA of accounting reporting 1 week S E L. Development and QA of management reporting 1 week S E M. Development of Management Information System 1 week S L N. Client internal user training 1 week S I, J, K, M * P: Parallel, S: Sequential Step 3: Input Activities Into Software Or a Template. You can draw your charts by hand or use specialist software, such as Gantto, Matchware, or Microsoft Project. Some of these tools are cloud-based, meaning that you and your team can access the document simultaneously, from any location. (This helps a lot when you're discussing, optimizing, and reporting on a project.) Several Gantt templates have been created for Microsoft Excel, and you can also find free templates with a quick search online. Figure 2 – Example Gantt chart.   (Click here to expand this diagram.) Step 4: Chart Progress. As your project moves along, it will evolve. For example, in our scenario, if quality assurance of core modules revealed a problem, then you may need to delay training, and halt development of the management information system until the issue is resolved. Update your chart to reflect changes as soon as they occur. This will help you to keep your plans, your team, and your sponsors up to date. Key Points. Gantt charts are useful for planning and scheduling projects. They help you assess how long a project should take, determine the resources needed, and plan the order in which you'll complete tasks. They're also helpful for managing the dependencies between tasks. Gantt charts are useful for monitoring a project's progress once it's underway, too. You can immediately see what should have been achieved by a certain date and, if the project is behind schedule, you can take action to bring it back on course.

Andrew, I watched the video and I saw what you commented on - and I agree. E can't start only five days after A. Your calculation seems right to me. Thanks for taking the time to ask - while also letting us know there's an issue. I will definitely let our editorial team know. I see you've been a Club member for a while now - do come and say hi on the forums too? We'd love to welcome you there: https://www.mindtools.com/forums/ Kind regards, Yolande Mind Tools Team Over a month ago apsobrien wrote Dear MindTools, I love your website, the quality of all the learning materials, especially the hyperlinking throughout and the ability to create & track learning paths. With regards to the video in this article, I found it very helpful. However, there is one detail that didn't make sense to me, so I wanted to write and find out if it's a mistake or if I'm just not understanding the content correctly. At 01:36 in the video, it shows the Earliest Start Time for Task E (Training) as September 30, which is only 5 days after the project begins on September 25th. However, according to the schedule as laid out, it shouldn't be able to be started until November 13th, or Week 7. What am I misunderstanding? Or is this a typo? Sincerely, Andrew O. Over a month ago Yolande wrote Hi RIMAAZAR, It sounds like you're really getting into Gantt Charts! I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that there are Gantt Chart templates in both Excel and PowerPoint. Click on "New" (in any of these programs). When the various templates come up, go to the "Search" function (usually top right) and type in "Gantt." It will come up with a variety of formats for Gantt Charts in both Excel and PowerPoint. The best way to compile your own charts is to use the information we provide in the article under the various steps. If you'd like to run your ideas by a bigger audience, why not come over to the Forums and ask there? One of our other members might just have some great experience with Gantt Charts that they're willing to share. You'll find the Forums here: https://www.mindtools.com/forums/index.php Go to "Welcome" to introduce yourself and click on Career Cafe Central and start a new topic to ask for help with Gantt Charts.

A Gantt chart is a commonly used graphical depiction of a project schedule. It's a type of bar chart showing the start and finish dates of a project's elements such as resources, planning and dependencies. Henry Gantt (1861-1919), an American mechanical engineer, designed the Gantt chart. Key Takeaways. A Gantt chart is a visualization that helps in scheduling, managing, and monitoring specific tasks and resources in a project.It consists of a list of tasks and bars depicting each task's progress.It's the most widely used chart in project management.Gantt charts are used in heavy industries for projects like building dams, bridges, and highways, as well as software development and building out of other goods and services. Understanding Gantt Charts . The Gantt chart is the most widely used chart in project management. These charts are useful in planning a project and defining the sequence of tasks that require completion. In most instances, the chart is displayed as a horizontal bar chart. Horizontal bars of different lengths represent the project timeline, which can include task sequences, duration, and the start and end dates for each task. The horizontal bar also shows how much of a task requires completion. A Gantt chart helps in scheduling, managing, and monitoring specific tasks and resources in a project. The chart shows the project timeline, which includes scheduled and completed work over a period. The Gantt chart aids project managers in communicating project status or plans and also helps ensure the project remains on track. The length of the bar is proportional to the time necessary for a task’s completion. The project tasks are represented on the vertical axis. Benefits of a Gantt Chart . The chart identifies tasks that may be executed in parallel and those that can't be started or finished until others are complete. It can help detect potential bottlenecks and identify tasks that may have been excluded from the project timeline. The chart depicts things like: task slack time or additional time for completion of a task that shouldn't delay the project; noncritical activities that may be delayed; and critical activities that must be executed on time. Gantt charts can be used in managing projects of all sizes and types. These may include building infrastructure like dams, bridges, and highways. They may also include software development and other technologies. Project management tools, such as Microsoft Visio, Project, SharePoint, and Excel, or specialized software, such as Gantto or Matchware, can help in designing Gantt charts. Example of a Gantt Chart . If the project is about installing new software on a server, the project tasks that require completion are conducting research, selecting a software product, testing the software, and installing it. A milestone is selecting the software. These tasks appear as vertical lines on the chart.  Say the project duration is 40 days. Each task takes 10 days to complete, and each task is dependent on the previous task. A critical activity is testing the software in the development and test environments. The task start and end dates, duration, and milestones appear as horizontal bars. The percentage of work completed for each task also is displayed on the horizontal bars. What are Gantt charts used for? Gantt charts help visualize various tasks and projects that occur simultaneously with an organization, how far along they have progressed. They are used by management to plan and schedule such projects so that resources can be allocated in the optimal way and that projects that are prioritized can finish before less important ones begin. Who was Henry Gantt? Henry Gantt was a social scientist and management consultant who also held a degree in mechanical engineering. He worked in the field of scientific management, developing methods to streamline and increase the productivity of corporations and their workforce. He created the Gantt chart in the 1910s to help supervisors understand the progress of their labor force and to ensure tasks were on schedule. What are the components of a Gantt Chart? A Gantt chart can vary in complexity and depth, but will always have three key components: activities or tasks that are to be done, running along the y-axis; milestones or progress stages indicated along the x-axis (either on the top or bottom of the chart); and progress bars, denoted as horizontal bars, denoting how far along each task is at any given point.

WindowsMacOS Need to show status for a simple project schedule with a Gantt chart? Though Excel doesn’t have a predefined Gantt chart type, you can create one using this free template: Gantt project planner template for Excel Need to show status for a simple project schedule with a Gantt chart? Though Excel doesn’t have a predefined Gantt chart type, you can simulate one by customizing a stacked bar chart to show the start and finish dates of tasks, like this: To create a Gantt chart like the one in our example that shows task progress in days: Select the data you want to chart. In our example, that’s A1:C6 If your data’s in a continuous range of cells, select any cell in that range to include all the data in that range. If your data isn't in a continuous range, select the cells while holding down the COMMAND key. Tip: If you don't want to include specific rows or columns of data you can hide them on the worksheet. Find out more about selecting data for your chart. Click Insert > Insert Bar Chart > Stacked Bar chart. Next, we’ll format the stacked bar chart to appear like a Gantt chart. In the chart, click the first data series (the Start part of the bar in blue) and then on the Format tab, select Shape Fill > No Fill. If you don’t need the legend or chart title, click it and press DELETE. Let’s also reverse the task order so that it starts with Task1. Hold the CONTROL key, and select the vertical axis (Tasks). Select Format Axis, and under Axis Position, choose Categories in reverse order. Customize your chart. You can customize the Gantt type chart we created by adding gridlines, labels, changing the bar color, and more. To add elements to the chart, click the chart area, and on the Chart Design tab, select Add Chart Element. To select a layout, click Quick Layout. To fine-tune the design, tab through the design options and select one. To change the colors for the chart, click Change Colors. To reuse your customized Gantt chart, save it as a template. Hold CONTROL and click in the chart, and then select Save as Template. Did you know?

Problem is, you’re not quite sure what a Gantt chart is, what it looks like, or how to make one.While Gantt charts can get quite complex, the basics aren’t hard to nail. In this overview, you’ll get a quick and easy breakdown of what Gantt charts are, what to use them for, and some quick-to-set-up alternatives you can start using now.What is a Gantt chart, anyway?Common in project management, a Gantt chart is a horizontal bar chart used to illustrate a timeline of a project, program, or work. It’s a visual way to see your project schedule, track milestones, and get a feel for the timeline of your work. Each bar in a Gantt chart lays out a step in the process (or task in the project), and the length of the bar represents the amount of time that step or task will take. When you zoom out to look at the full picture, Gantt charts give teams an overview of what work needs to get done, who’s doing it, and when.Try timeline with Asana for freeHistory of Gantt charts. The earliest version of a Gantt chart was invented by Karol Adamiecki, who invented what he called the harmonogram in 1896. Adamiecki published his findings in Russian and Polish, which made them difficult to access in English-speaking countries. In 1910, Henry Gantt independently popularized a similar chart in the United States, which he devised in order to represent how long factory workers spent on a given task. These two systems have since been merged to create what we know of today as the modern-day Gantt chart.From tracking factory employees’ tasks, Gantt charts then became a popular way to track project schedules. Originally, Gantt charts were drawn on paper—which meant that, whenever the schedule changed, the charts had to be redrawn. Later, project managers used pieces of paper or blocks to represent the Gantt chart bars, so they could move them around as needed.Key features of modern-day Gantt charts. Today, modern-day Gantt charts run on intelligent, online software that help teams pinpoint dependencies, schedule work, and keep projects on track. Modern work management tools, like Asana, include all of the modern-day Gantt chart functionality in addition to other ways to visualize project data and information. Look for tools that have:Real-time project progress. Most modern-day Gantt charts are cloud-based project management software tools that help teams plan projects of all sizes. Unlike the original Gantt charts which were drawn on paper, online Gantt charts allow teams to stay on top of their project planning and easily make adjustments when needed. When you shift a date or move a milestone, your Gantt chart should automatically reflect those changes, so you can stay up-to-date on the latest project news. This makes it easier for teams to collaborate and get great work done.Start and end dates. Gantt charts are ideal for visualizing complex projects with many tasks. Each “bar” on the horizontal Gantt chart represents a task. That way, teams can get a clear sense of which tasks are happening when, and how long each task will take.Task dependencies. In addition to visualizing individual start and end dates for each task on a Gantt chart, these visual charts make it easy to map any dependencies between tasks. You should be able to draw task dependencies in your Gantt chart software. With dependencies, team members can easily identify who is waiting on their work in order to get started. And, if you need to push work back for some reason, you can identify problems and shift dependency conflicts before they start.Milestones. Milestones are key features of Gantt chart projects. Unlike the majority of tasks in a Gantt chart—which will appear as horizontal bars that span a length of time—milestones are distinct points in time. In a Gantt chart, milestones represent checkpoints and important moments in the project’s timeline. They also provide at-a-glance insight into the whole project’s key dates.Read: What is a milestone chart and why is it beneficialThe benefits of using a Gantt chart. Typically, people use Gantt charts to visualize a project plan. And while it’s not the only way to create a visual view of your work, they can be particularly helpful for certain types of work. For example, Gantt charts are a good option to consider if you need to:Visually map out a project plan and timeline. Gantt charts are good at showing what work will happen, when, and in what order, and can help you create clarity on your project plan and timeline.Organize complex projects. Whether it’s a cross-team initiative or a large, ambitious new project, a Gantt chart will act as your guide. Like a map, you can see each step in advance and where your team needs to go next.Coordinate multiple stakeholders. Often, multiple teammates will work on different parts of a project at the same time. Gantt charts give you perspective on all the moving parts at any given moment—and when to hand the torch off to the next person.Estimate timelines and workloads. Whether you work in-house or at an agency, a Gantt chart lets you know how much time and person-power you need upfront—so you can allocate resources and schedule due dates accordingly.Try timeline with Asana for freeWho should use Gantt charts?Gantt charts are great for teams that need to see their projects on a timeline. Ideally, Gantt charts should be used for tasks with start and end dates, so the tasks appear as long bars on a bar chart, instead of discrete moments in time. For example, Gantt charts would be helpful if your team was planning:A marketing campaignA product launchAn engineering process revampA company press-conferenceBut not every project is best tracked in a Gantt chart. There are other forms of visual project management, like Kanban boards and calendars, that might be better ways to view your data. That’s why it’s critical that your project management tool offers multiple views for each project. That way, you can switch between Gantt chart, Kanban board, calendar, and to-do list style views, based on what type of project you’re working on.Read: How to use Asana Lists, Boards, Calendar, and Timeline View5 steps to create a great Gantt chart. The best Gantt charts track your project schedule in a bar chart, so you can see your exact timeline and progress. Make sure your Gantt chart software offers a way for you to clarify dependencies between tasks and pinpoint project milestones.If you’re new to creating Gantt charts, here are the five most important steps you need to take:1. Define the time range. Your Gantt chart should be a project with a start and end date. Think of your Gantt chart as a way to represent your project over a timeline—your timeline needs a beginning and end point.For example, let’s say we’re planning a product launch. The product team started working on the new product on August 1st, and we expect it to be fully produced and in market by September 30th. Our Gantt chart would begin on August 1st, and run until at least September 30th.Why do we say “at least”? You’ll likely have some follow up tasks that happen after September 30th, like sending a reminder email to your clients that this product is live, continuing your social media production, and following up with press interviews. So even though your “Launch product” milestone would land on September 30th, the project will likely run until mid-October.2. Add tasks with start and end dates. Gantt charts work best when you have tasks with beginning and end dates, so you can visualize them as bars on a bar chart. If you don’t add start dates, then your tasks will show up as moments in time—which might be harder to visualize.Continuing our product launch example, here are a few of the tasks we might add to our Gantt chart:August 3rd – August 14th: The product team runs their first two-week Agile sprint to develop the product v1.August 17th – August 21st: The product team reviews their product v1.August 24th – September 4th: The product team runs their second two-week sprint to develop the final product.August 31st – September 4th: Now that the product is mostly complete, the product marketing team starts preparing the marketing plan for the launch.September 7th – September 11th: The product marketing team works with the design team to prepare images, gifs, and videos for the launch.September 10th – September 16th: The content team works on blogs and web pages for the launch.September 14th – September 18th: The social media team prepares their posts.Later on, we might want to break these tasks down further into a work breakdown structure—for example, we might want to create separate tasks for the videos, images, and gifs the design team is creating. But for now, this is what our chart would look like:In this view, you can also see the bars are color-coded based on what team is working on them: blue is product, green is product marketing, purple is design, pink is content, and yellow is social media. Having a color-code function in your Gantt chart is really important as projects become more complex, so you can keep track of which team is responsible for what.3. Clarify dependencies. In a project as big as this one, we naturally have some tasks that can’t get started until other tasks are completed. To keep the project running smoothly, and every team on the same page, you can visualize dependencies between tasks in your Gantt chart.In our example, the Product v1 review task is dependent on the Product v1 sprint, and the Product v2 sprint is dependent on the Product v1 review. By drawing dependencies between these tasks, the entire product team can stay up to date about what they’re able to start working on. Additionally, the design, content, and social media teams can’t get started on their work until the product marketing team completes the marketing plan. Visualized in a Gantt chart, you’d get the following:4. Pinpoint milestones. Unlike most tasks in a Gantt chart, milestones are fixed points in time. Think of them as checkpoints to signify that large pieces of work have been completed. They help your team know what to prioritize, and can be great moments of celebration when they’re completed.Read: How to set, achieve, and celebrate project milestonesIf we’re working on a product launch, we might want to set milestones for when the product is completed, when the marketing plan is completed, and when the product is live in-market. Make sure your Gantt chart software has a way to differentiate milestones from other tasks. Here’s what it looks like, all together:5. Modify work as plans change. You’ll notice that, in our timeline, we very optimistically planned to be finished by September 18th, even though the launch isn’t until September 30th. In reality, things don’t always work out as planned. Maybe the product team needed a third, shorter sprint to finalize the product. Or maybe the design and content teams needed more than one week to create their assets, which pushed back the social media plan.Plans will inevitably change, which is why your Gantt chart software should be able to adapt to your needs. Look for a tool that allows you to drag and drop tasks, and that automatically shifts dependencies when you do. That way, you can always keep your project on track, even as plans shift.Try timeline with Asana for freeHow to use Gantt charts. While you could use a Gantt chart for a wide variety of projects and programs, it’s helpful to ground your understanding of Gantt charts in a few concrete examples. Below are three different examples of ways you might use a Gantt chart:Mapping out a large marketing campaign. Larger marketing campaigns require a lot of collaboration and coordination—and it’s easy to lose track of all the moving pieces. Gantt charts simplify the process by outlining a sequence of tasks with an assignee and how long each will take. This way, teams don’t just know who’s responsible for what, but also how their work impacts others or the larger goal.Outline deliverables for a client. If you work in an agency, a Gantt chart can be used to show clients a timeline of all of your deliverables and set expectations around how long each will take. By outlining plans this way, you can give clients a clear idea of the scope of your deliverables, and how long each one will take to accomplish—so they won’t just know when you’re delivering an item, but also when you’ll be working on it.Plan a product launch. For product launches, you might use a Gantt chart to map out the entire plan from ideation to launch and beyond. By visualizing this in a Gantt chart, you’re then able to more easily spot conflicts before you begin, see dependencies between steps, and get a clear overview of everything that’s happening leading up to the launch, and when.Download guide: The ultimate guide to launching products with AsanaPros and cons of Gantt charts. While Gantt charts can be helpful, they aren’t always the best view for every project. To better understand if a timeline view is right for you and your project, here are a few pros and cons to consider before you leap into creating one.Advantages of using a Gantt chart. Gantt charts can be powerful tools for visual project management. Some of the advantages of using a Gantt chart include:Get a bird’s-eye view of your project timeline. At the outset of a project, Gantt charts allow you to see a map of where your plans are headed and when you expect to hit each milestone. This lets you then share your project timeline with stakeholders, better plan your staffing and resources, and know what you have to do, and when, to keep everything on track.See how tasks are related to each other. By adding start and end dates to each task and marking dependencies, you can visualize how each piece of work affects another. This helps you identify problems and fix dependency conflicts before you start.Improve team resource management. Adding an owner to each piece of work can help you see who’s doing what and when to better manage individual workloads. Since everything is plotted out sequentially, you’ll be able to see if an individual teammate or team has too much to do at one time, then reassign or reschedule tasks as needed.Risks of using a Gantt chart. Gantt charts aren’t without their faults. Below are a few hurdles people often run into when using traditional Gantt chart software:They can be time consuming to set up. Setting up a Gantt chart isn’t instant. Especially if you’re using a spreadsheet, it could take a good chunk of time to get your work set up in a Gantt chart view. Even if you use a template, you might still have to make adjustments to customize it to your team’s specific needs.It’s difficult to manage the project in the same place you planned it. Traditional Gantt charts are most useful in the planning phase of a project. Once you’ve mapped out your work, though, you’ll often move to a different tool or platform to manage day-to-day activities, making it hard to know where your team’s single source of truth is.Adding more details gets messy. Whether it’s micro steps within a milestone, files, or an explanation of what exactly you mean by “Turn on retargeting campaign,” adding these helpful details to your project plan on a Gantt chart can turn it from easy-to-view map to overwhelming sheet of chaos.Alternatives to traditional Gantt charts. Fortunately, there are alternatives to Gantt charts that still give you a bird’s-eye view of how all your work fits together—without the typical limitations of a traditional, spreadsheet-based Gantt chart.Better tools to build your plan. A work project management tool like Asana can help you manage, coordinate, and add details to your work in the same place you plan it—while also spending less time setting everything up.Read: Introduction to work managementFor example, you could set up your project plan using Asana’s Timeline, a Gantt-chart like view that lets you map out how all the pieces of your project fit together. Like a Gantt chart, Timeline shows you when each step will happen, how long it will take, and who’s responsible. Unlike a Gantt chart, Timeline is easy to set up, maintain, and lets your team collaborate on work in the same place you planned it.Try timeline with Asana for freeOther types of visual project management. Depending on the type of work you’re managing, a calendar or a Kanban board could work as a more lightweight and quicker to set up alternative to visualizing your project plan in a timeline. With Asana, you can also switch between project views. View any project in either Timeline, List, Boards, or Calendar View, so your team can see their work in the way they prefer. You can test out all of these views with a free Premium trial.Read: 3 ways to visualize a project plan: Timelines, calendars, and boardsPlan projects like a pro. Whether you end up using a Gantt chart or a similar alternative, visualizing your project plan is a key step for every team—whether you’re a project manager or not. It allows you to show how all the pieces of your project fit together, share it with your team, and adapt your plan as work progresses to keep everything on track.Map out your project plan and watch the pieces come together with Asana.Related resources.

You may have seen stacked bar charts as well.If you haven’t delved much deeper than that, don’t worry. In this blog, we will cover what you need to know about Gantt charts as a project management tool and answer your burning questions like, ‘should you be using online Gantt chart software’, ‘build a Gantt chart in Excel or one in Google sheets’ —or stick to pen and paper for project planning?Get startedWhat is a Gantt chart?A Gantt chart, commonly used as a project schedule is one of the most useful and classic ways of showing activities (tasks or events) displayed against time. It is based on Henry Gantt’s original design that evolved from Karol Adamiecki’s harmonograph.A Gantt chart is a horizontal bar chart that shows a project’s planned schedule and its tasks or events between a start and finish date. Each bar in the Gantt chart represents a task, while the dates are laid out horizontally. Modern Gantt charts can also show task dependencies—how each task connects to others. A simple Gantt chart provides clarity on deadlines, milestones, and project progress. Everyone on your team knows what they have to work on, when, and how it impacts the overall project.While no two Gantt charts look the same, let’s take a closer look at their key components.  Key components. Date/Time: the date and duration of each task are often displayed in days/weeks/months, but can also be represented in minutes/hours. The current day/time is usually highlighted. P.S., the length of each rectangle tells you how long a task is expected to take, known as the duration of the task.Tasks/Items: there are individual activities (or tasks) that live at various stages of completion. Each task can stand on its own, and if you use monday.com you can also group tasks together to create sub-items.Owner: this represents the person responsible for the task. Note: this can be more than one person or an entire team.Critical path. Any explanation of Gantt chart structure should also include something called a critical path. A critical path refers to the phenomenon in which any individual task could cause a delay in a related sequence of tasks, therefore pushing back a project’s overall end date. The critical path method is an approach used by project managers to determine the longest sequence of tasks that must be completed for the project to be a success. Gantt charts allow you to quickly visualize which tasks are auxiliary, which are most critical, and which of all tasks are most vital to the delivery of a project happening on time. Once you know a project’s critical path, you’ll be able to set some deadlines for each individual task. Try monday.com Gantt chart. with monday.com Work OS. Get started Having problems signing up? Contact us, we're here, 24/7 What is a Gantt chart used for? A Gantt chart is primarily used to assist the planning and scheduling of projects of all sizes, but they are particularly useful for simplifying complex projects. Project management with Gantt charts could include anything from resource management plans to planning killer marketing campaigns.Understanding a project’s scope and requirements is made easier with Gantt charts because they provide a visual representation of your project at any stage, including task dependencies, priorities, and ownership. This can also be useful as a high-level guide for managers as they are tracking project progress.This relates to Work Breakdown Structure of WBS, a specific method of breaking down large or complicated goals into manageable objectives. It is often the foundation for creating a solid Gantt chart. It depicts what tasks (and subtasks) are to be completed, but it does not show when each task will begin and end. By starting with a hierarchical representation of tasks and their dependencies (WBS), you can then layer in Gantt chart components such as time, ownership, status, milestones, etc. to create a clearer picture.
