Just a quick explanation on the word "termination". Termination does not necessarily mean that the project is killed, but it can also mean project completion.

In any case, the activities that happen during project termination are:

- Scope verification
- Contract & administrative closeout
- Gathering the lessons learned
- Celebrating (with the project team)

When a project is terminated, it is like project closure:  the team needs to be evaluated and released, invoices need to be paid, lessons learned conducted, etc. The project plan should specify who has the roles and responsibilities of termination, but since we don't normally plan for failure, the project manager needs to plan the tasks.  Planning would identify the roles and responsibilieis.
