    Re: approach and method?

    I take it that the context is either business or research.

    An approach = dealing with something

    His approach to the problem of DNA research was unusual.
    Your approach to the costings is not acceptable.


    Method = a particular way of doing something:

    His method of research into DNA was meticulous.
    Your method of doing the costings is very strange.

    A method is more explicitly thought out. A good method details each step of the plan.
    An approach is more general. It could be merely the way you set about doing things, for example.
