Examine the list for parallel and sequential tasks.
Sequential tasks depend on one or more tasks and cannot begin until the predecessors are complete. Write "p" next to the parallel tasks and "s" next to the sequential tasks in the second column.
Draw a horizontal bar for each task, from the estimated start date to the expected completion date.
For instance, draw a bar from the start of day 1 to the end of day 2 for a task expected to end in two days.
Write the tasks in the first column on the left side of the sheet.
Label the top of the remaining columns with dates in increments of the time unit you have chosen.
For these reasons, the Gantt chart is often used for project management.
The chart is not complex to create, but its success depends on accurate time estimates. List up to 20 key tasks that are necessary to complete the project in the first column on the left. It is best to limit the number of tasks to 20, so the chart can fit on one page.
