On the December PMWJ Featured Paper about Henry Gantt


Dear Editor,

I am writing to complement Patrick Weaver on his excellent article in the December 2012 issue of PM World Journal titled “Henry L Gantt, 1861 – 1919 Debunking the myths, a retrospective view of his work.” I have been a project manager for almost 40 years and consider myself to be quite the expert. I thank Mr. Weaver for providing me the opportunity for a “reality check” to remind me that I do not know half of what I thought I knew. I suffered from both of the misconceptions identified in his informative paper and found myself fascinated by the history lesson provided by Mr. Weaver.
