T-Rex: Gallifreyan software development projects.
T-Rex: With GANTT CHARTS!
{a Gantt chart showing typical cascade of work units with time, and also arrows leading back to earlier times with more work units overlapping the others}
Utahraptor: Wait... they go back in time...
Utahraptor: So they can have a 4 person team work 12 person-months each month?
T-Rex: Yes!
T-Rex Also applies to developers on Earth.
T-Rex: Just without the time travel.

The author writes:

Apparently Henry Gantt, creator of the Gantt chart, is descended from one Gilbert de Gant, a Norman who accompanied William the Conqueror on his invasion of England in 1066.

Imagine how software development would have been different if King Harold had won and Gilbert had been a casualty of the battle...

We might all be using Godwinson charts instead.
