Task Scheduling (Gantt Chart)

(To be created with a Gantt chart tool, showing the timelines for each task over the 12 months)


Gantt Chart

A Gantt chart is a tool used to plan and track the progress of projects. Imagine you have a big board with days or weeks marked on it. On this board, you place different bars that represent the various tasks needed to complete the project. Each bar shows when the task starts, how long it takes and when it ends. This makes it easy to see what needs to be done, when it's happening and how the different tasks are related to each other. The Gantt Chart helps teams organize their work, makes it easy to track progress and helps keep the project on track for completion. You can find a Gantt Chart template in Google Sheets, for example.
