15 Project Management Tools & Techniques for Project Managers

Project management tools and techniques make planning and managing projects easier and more effective. Gantt charts are one of the most important project management tools due to their versatility and can be used throughout the various phases of projects to help with project planning, project scheduling and project tracking. Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a way to organize work into smaller, more manageable pieces. The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) defines the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) as a "deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the team." It is a graphic representation of every task in the project, with a line that goes down the page to a box that represents the larger tasks. Work breakdown structure diagrams are a popular project management tool, typically used in project management techniques such as the critical path method (CPM) or the Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT).3.

Project Network Diagrams are graphical representations of a project that show how activities interact in a project. They are used in various project management techniques that require a graphical representation of task sequences. The purpose of the network diagram is to help project managers track each project element and make it easier to share and communicate with others on the project team.
