Week in review – 05/20/13 – 05/26/13

This past week, I was reminded of the reason why it is important to do proper analysis of a project.  I was handed two project.  One was hot and the other wasn’t.  I was asked to do the not-hot one before the hot one.  I put the sub-tasks of both on a Gantt chart and it showed the hot project’s deadline being blown by 7 days.  I was able to use the Gantt chart to justify reordering my todo list.  This is one of the biggest lessons I walked away from Kohler with.  If I hadn’t broken down the individual tasks of the two projects, I would have been stuck in a world of hurt in a few weeks.  Now, I have a much more comfortable timetable.  Interested in starting to make your own Gantt charts?
