What is a Gantt Chart in Project Management?

A Gantt Chart is a table that illustrates the course of a project and all the elements involved. Simply put, it is a timeline view of all your upcoming tasks and deadlines.

This visual was first developed by Karol Adamiecki in 1896 before Henry Gantt devised his own version which illustrates a project schedule in the 1910s. Gantt Charts are a useful tool to see the entire landscape of either one or multiple projects. It helps you view which tasks are dependent on one another and milestones that are coming up.
