Keys to Successful Gantt Charts

  • USE the default, finish-to-start, constraints obtained by specifying predecessors, unless you KNOW you need to do something else!!!

  • DON’T put REPORTING tasks in the dependency chain, unless they are REALLY in the chain

    • If boss stops work unless approves report…

    • If delaying report submission delays the completion of the project!

  • Don’t block your critical path by making the last task scheduled be independent of other tasks – you get NOTHING. Last task determines end of critical path, which works backwards from there.

  • TEST your critical path – EVERY task that must be accomplished to avoid delaying successful project completion should appear in a dependency chain that leads to final demo of your project. That’s NOT interim reports and presentations! You can ALWAYS report progress: e.g., “There was none.” That’s a progress report.

  • Use “Tracking Gantt” mode to see critical path and task completion/partial completion

  • Track (record) completion of tasks regularly, show your facilitator

  • Make sure your (operating) plan shows completion by the due date (last Thursday of semester, or earlier)
