Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

This is an example of benchmarking. According to the PMBOK Guide, "Benchmarking involves comparing actual or planned project practices to those of comparable projects to identify best practices, generate ideas for improvement, and provide a basis for measuring performance. These other projects can be within the performing organization or outside of it and can be within the same or in another application area."
