ABSTRACT: “Agile Beyond Gantt”
Currently there is an ongoing debate as to whether the Gantt charts belong to the agile
world. Gantt chart was born around 1910, while agile era began around 2001. Could such
an eminent tool be relevant to the modern organization? Contemporary product and project
managers believe that Gantt charts are ”aging but usable” in the 21st century, but the name
is out of fashion. The focus of this presentation is to describe more fully the development
and early history of this classic project management tool, Gantt chart; and review their
contemporary uses and future prospects.
