In project management, it’s essential to keep track of what needs to be done. One way of doing this is with a Gantt chart.

A Gantt chart provides a visual overview of the project. It shows the tasks, their order, and their time frame.

This video shows why Gantt charts are so useful, and how you can use them to organise projects and keep your team informed of progress.
