A Gantt chart is a visual view of tasks scheduled over time. Invented by Henry Gantt, an American mechanical engineer, it's a type of bar chart that shows the start and finish dates of several elements of a project that include: what the project tasks are, who is working on each task, how long each task will take, and how tasks group together, overlap, and link with each other.
Gantt charts are usually used for:
- Project management to track tasks and milestones
- Marketing planning to ensure deadlines are met
- Product roadmaps to manage deadlines and deliverables.
The Beautiful.ai Gantt chart template is the perfect tool to show all elements of a complex project in a balanced, easy to read graphic.
