Gantt chart

Gantt chart
A Gantt chart showing three kinds of schedule dependencies (in red) and percent complete indications. Although now regarded as a common charting technique, Gantt charts were considered revolutionary when first introduced.[2] This chart is also used in information technology to represent data that have been collected. Historical development[edit] The first known tool of this type was developed in 1896 by Karol Adamiecki, who called it a harmonogram.[3] Adamiecki did not publish his chart until 1931, however, and only in Polish, which limited both its adoption and recognition of his authorship. The chart is named after Henry Gantt (1861โ€“1919), who designed his chart around the years 1910โ€“1915.[4][5] In the 1980s, personal computers allowed for widespread creation of complex and elaborate Gantt charts. Further applications[edit] There are many computer applications supporting the use of Gantt charts for employee scheduling. Example[edit] See also[edit] References[edit] External links[edit]

GREEN FLOAT/Shimizu's Dream - Shimizu Corporation Going Beyond CO2 Reduction to Carbon Negative To create a city that absorbs CO2 like a plant, we will employ environmental technologies to achieve a carbon negative system. Switch to a Compact City and Conversion of Industrial Structure (CO2 Reduction: About 40%) Reduce CO2 through more efficient transportation and distribution resulting from the shift to a compact city. Energy Conservation (CO2 Reduction: About 30%)

PRINCE2 PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects IN a Controlled Environment, version 2) is a project management methodology. The methodology encompasses the high level management, control and organisation of a project, but not lower level activities such as scheduling. PRINCE2 is also used to refer to the training and accreditation of authorised practitioners of the methodology who must undertake accredited qualifications to obtain certification. History[edit] Gantt Get the most out of your valuable resources, i.e., Your Team,to accomplish critical tasks that are overdue by effectively realigning members based on their skills. You can also quickly gain insights into how your resources are being utilized in a matter of few minutes.

A workout for working memory People may be able to remember a nearly infinite number of facts, but only a handful of items--held in working memory--can be accessed and considered at any given moment. It's the reason why a person might forget to buy an item or two on a mental grocery list, or why most people have difficulty adding together large numbers. In fact, working memory could be the basis for general intelligence and reasoning: Those who can hold many items in their mind may be well equipped to consider different angles of a complex problem simultaneously. If psychologists could help people expand their working-memory capacity or make it function more efficiently, everyone could benefit, from chess masters to learning-disabled children, says Torkel Klingberg, MD, PhD, an assistant cognitive neuroscience professor at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. "It could be that working-memory problems give rise to observable behavioral symptoms of ADHD: distractibility and also poor academic achievement," she says.

Gantt project management software with Gantt chart Wrike's Gantt chart maker helps you create interactive Gantt charts to visualize your plans in real time and lets you update the schedule with a couple of mouse clicks. "The Gantt chart feature is outrageously useful. template An eye for the tremes? 2 minute video Here's the idea - the phones, computers and servers we are building are becoming interconnected like neurons in a brain. But this treme machine has no senses to survey the real world. Or does it?

Roles on Agile Teams: From Small to Large Teams There are several key differences between the agile approach to team organization and the traditional approach. Agile teams are "whole teams". Whole team is an Extreme Programming (XP) practice that advises you to have sufficient skills within the team itself to get the job done. Gantt Using interactive Gantt chart capabilities in Smartsheet is a great way to visualize your project. You can customize your chart with conditional formatting to highlight team members' tasks or indicate status levels with different colors. Your team or clients will instantly "get it" and understand the tasks and related dependencies. Plus, it couldn't be easier to update with drag-and-drop editing (even if you've never used one before!).

Memetics This article is related to the study of self-replicating units of culture, not to be confused with Mimesis. Memetics is a theory of mental content based on an analogy with Darwinian evolution, originating from the popularization of Richard Dawkins' 1976 book The Selfish Gene.[1] Proponents describe memetics as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer. The meme, analogous to a gene, was conceived as a "unit of culture" (an idea, belief, pattern of behaviour, etc.) which is "hosted" in the minds of one or more individuals, and which can reproduce itself, thereby jumping from mind to mind. Agile software development Agile software development is a group of software development methods in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continuous improvement, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change.[1] The Manifesto for Agile Software Development,[2] also known as the Agile Manifesto, first introduced the term agile in the context of software development in 2001. However, it evolved from techniques developed at DuPont in the mid-80s and further defined in works by James Martin[3] and James Kerr et al. [4] History[edit]

Memetics at Thwink.org A meme is a mental belief or behavior learned from others. Another definition is a "unit of cultural information." Memetic means of or dealing with memes, just as genetic means of or dealing with genes. Memetics is the study and practical application of the abstraction of memes.
