Back when I was but a wee pup, we did project management the hard way – with Microsoft Project! Printing out a gantt chart took many, many minutes. Back in the day of Union Terminal’s construction, the architects drew their gantt charts by hand, just like their blueprints.
The construction project was so controlled and disciplined, they even had a project font created specifically for blueprints and planning. The planners even created an ‘expected mortality’ chart to estimate the loss of life during construction (which we also hear was extremely minimal, thank goodness).
Take that, six sigma!
