The Gantt Chart is 96 years old.  A Gantt chart is a horizontal bar chart developed as a production control tool in 1917 by Henry L. Gantt, an American engineer and social scientist.  It would be interesting to know how many project managers make use of their gantt charts (or even have one) regularly in this world of cloud collaboration.
