Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning Gantt Charts.
- To accompany this course, there are a number of PDFs that you can download. These compliment the graphics that will be coming and going quite fast on your screen. So, you can print them out and write notes on them or pause the course and examine the PDFs in a bit more detail if you need to. When you come to plan your real project, you can then refer to the printed out PDF notes. Ideally, you would either plan a project as you go through this course, so that at each stage you can apply the ideas, or you would've recently drawn a real Gantt chart that you can look at and compare with the ideal that I'll be describing.
The other option is to absorb all of this course and then quite soon afterwards, you can go off and draw your own perfect Gantt chart for your real project.
