The Hard Side of Project Management: Software, Timelines, and Gantt Charts

August 27, 2020

Managing projects efficiently is essential to maximizing business. Using visual representation to track workflow is a great technique for doing just that.

Attend this ATA webinar to learn three visual strategies to help organize time and workflow: timelines, Gantt charts, and the time-management matrix. Presenter Carina Balbo will explain each strategy in turn, show how it works, and discuss some of the tools and software—both free and paid—to use in the process.

The webinar will close with a project management demonstration using two of the free tools Carina currently works with in her own project management.

    • How to keep track of project workflow.
