ACTION PLAN/GANTT CHART What it is: An action plan/Gantt chart is a graphic representation of a project’s schedule, showing the sequence of tasks, which tasks can be performed simultaneously, and the most critical tasks to monitor. The plan/chart can be used for an entire project or for a key phase of a project. The plan/chart allows a team to avoid unrealistic timetables and schedule expectations, to help identify and shorten tasks that are bottlenecks, and to focus attention on most critical tasks. When to use it: Because they are primarily project-management tools, action plans/Gantt charts are most useful for planning and tracking entire projects or for scheduling and tracking the implementation phase of a planning or improvement effort. How to use it: Identify all tasks or project components . Make sure the team includes people with firsthand knowledge of the project so that during the brainstorming session all component tasks needed to complete the project are captured. Document the tasks on small note cards. Identify the first task that must be completed
