In the Technical Communication Report Project Proposal assignment, I ask you to create a Gantt Chart, which is a commonly used planning tool in the form of a bar chart used to illustrate a project schedule. To learn more about Gantt charts, see the infographic (clicking on it will take you to the larger version on the website) and the descriptions at both Wikipedia and You can find many tutorials on how to make a Gantt chart as well as templates for doing so. Smartsheet’s “How to Create a Gantt Chart in Excel” and “Create an Online Gantt Chart in Minutes” are but two examples. There are also a number of downloadable or online Gantt chart creators available.
