If you're planning or controlling the implementation of a project of any size then you'll need to have a Gantt chart. They are probably the most useful project management technique there is. And yet, they are hugely misunderstood. Most people don't know the easiest way to produce them and they end up making them too complicated and then they don't fully use them.
