    A Gantt chart is a popular project management tool that provides a visual representation of a project schedule. It is named after its creator, Henry Gantt, who designed it in the early 1900s.

    A Gantt chart displays the start and end dates of project tasks or activities as horizontal bars on a timeline. Each bar represents a task, and its length is proportional to the duration of the task. The bars are arranged in chronological order, with the earliest task on the left and the latest task on the right.
