Henry L. Gantt, for whom the Gantt chart is named, was employed at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds (part of what is now the U.S. Department of Defense, then called the War Department) in Aberdeen, Maryland as an ordinance engineer during the First World War. Although nearly a century has passed, the Gantt chart remains widely recognized as a fundamental, highly applicable tool for project managers everywhere. A Gantt chart enables you to easily view start and stop time for project tasks and sub tasks. Gantt charts are often devised from work breakdown structures (WBS).

In this book, you will learn about Gantt charts, PERT charts, and CPM charts, why they are so useful, and ways to keep projects from getting complex.
