Answer and Explanation:
The Correct answer is C. Identify Stakeholders is the process of identifying all people or organizations impacted by the project and documenting relevant information regarding their interests, involvement, and impact on project success. This is the second project initiation process after the Develop Project Charter process, and needs to be performed before starting any of the planning processes.
