Of course there is the brilliant program MS Project for project management but perhaps you need to do something a bit quick and not as involved as what you can do with MS Project. Well you could have a go at using Excel. The think in Project that makes it useful is a Gantt chart, a visual representation of your project over time, lets just call it a timeline. That’s built right in. What’s great is that as you make changes to durations, start dates or even move tasks the Gantt chart instantly updates.
Now in Excel you can add the data like the task, start date, duration, resources etc. But it would be nice to have the Gantt chart too, however, you have to create the Gantt chart yourself and might not have some of the features of MS Project. Excel, however, can be useful.
Here in this video I show you how to create your own Gantt chart in Excel.
