Project Techniques refer to the body of specialized procedures and tools used to begin a project and deliver a desired outcome by accomplishing this project. A project technique determines a skilled way for the team to focus on immediate project objectives and move towards accomplishing these objectives.
Project techniques identify technical, intellectual and mechanical skills and abilities of human resources required for doing a project job. They entail use of a particular trick, stratagem or contrivance to accomplish an objective.
For every project there is always a certain set of techniques that are closely linked to respective approaches and methods for managing the project. All approaches, methods and techniques are combined into a single methodology which determines relationships between the components. A typical project methodology includes the series "Approach-Method-Technique" and identifies how these components are linked to each other and sequenced. Project techniques always carry out project methods in the way that ensures consistency with project approaches.
