This Excel Gantt chart template can organize tasks and create a project schedule. The project manager is in charge of this. While the project manager is in order of this process, they will seek assistance from the project management team members to ensure they are prioritizing the right tasks. You'll want to consult with your team about task dependencies more than just the duration and sequence of activities. A task-dependent on another to begin or finish can hinder your team's progress or create bottlenecks that will lead you astray. If that task is on the critical path, it will impact your project's timeline. Your team is the best resource for understanding how each task interacts with the others.
