Usefulness of Gantt chart

ReformingProjectManagement is running a poll to find out "What Has the Gantt Chart Done for You Lately?".

From my personal experience Gantt chart did not prove to be extremely useful for the amount of effort required to maintain it. But most of my projects involved a great deal of uncertainty and changes/clarifications along the course of the project. So I will not manifest Gantt chart to be bad or ineffective tool, just it was not well suited for my particular situation.

It would be interesting to see what others say on this matter.
