Discussion 7 Termination By Starvation When reading Chapter 13, I found it interesting the models of termination and how they are each implemented within a project. I have been apart of many projects that have been terminated by each of these methods (at the time did not know what it was called).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
