How GANTT Charts could be built by using LEGO!
What a great idea I have seen today on the web!
Geof Lory explains in his blog post how he used Lego Blocks to build a GANTT Chart to represent in a different way the interdependencies of his project.
Here are the steps he used to get to the result:
Here are the guidelines / rules used to build the GANTT Chart
What a fantastic way to represent your time line, pieces of work and activities leading to it. And another tool to build a team as everybody is involved to build and maintain it. And beside that, you will build momentum and recognition as you might be the first on using it in your environment.
So go and find a sponsor for the blocks and start building on top of that idea.
This is a great idea. I think I will use this in the PM101 classes as a learning exercise. It will help to bring home th concept in a fun and useful way.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the comments on my article and th additional reference in your blog. If it helps one person with one project, it’s worthwhile.
Keep up the good work,
Currently bidding on several Lego / Duplo auctions on the net. At our project kick off by the end of January I will use the blocks for a dynamic ‚Did you understand the Project GANTT Chart? Then rebuild it with Lego! Session‘. Will post the pictures early Feb.
Very cool idea. I’d considering implementing but I don’t think I can squeeze in a „short trip to Legoland“~ LOL. It’s a little like using mindmaps, only the 3D version.
