If you run projects large or small, a key visual tool that you can use to manage your team is called a Gantt chart. Even if you don’t use a specific project management software application, you can use basic office tools to map out your projects in this graphical format. I often used MS Powerpoint to quickly map out initial project plans when I worked for a Fortune 50 company.
