The Gantt chart is one of the most popular methods of making a list of tasks to be done in the order of execution of the plan. You will most often come across Gantt diagrams in construction projects, for example. At first, this chart seems easy to draw on paper, but if you do it on a computer, are you confident enough? If yes, then congratulations, if not, follow this article of mine because I will show you how to make Gantt chart in PowerPoint.
