How to Create a Gantt Chart Using Microsoft Excel

~ By Dr Eugene O'Loughlin

A Gantt chart is a popular project management bar chart that tracks tasks across time. When first developed in 1917, the Gantt chart did not show the relationships between tasks. This has become common in current use, as both time and interdependencies between tasks are tracked.

Since their first introduction, Gantt charts have become an industry standard. They are an important project management tool used for showing the phases, tasks, milestones and resources needed as part of a project.

This video presentation is a step-by-step guide to creating a basic Gantt chart using Microsoft Excel.
