Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

The question implies that you are performing the Plan Communications Management process with the development of the communications management plan. Communication requirements analysis is one of the tools and techniques that may be used in this process. Analysis of communication requirements determines the information needs of the project stakeholders. These requirements are defined by combining the type and format of information needed with an analysis of the value of that information. Therefore, of the available answer choices, conducting a communication requirements analysis is the best course of action in this scenario.

Details for each option:

A. Develop the stakeholder register
Incorrect. According to the scenario, the project is in planning. The stakeholder register is first developed during the Identify Stakeholders process which belongs to the Initiating Process Group.

B. Review the requirements documentation
Incorrect. The requirements documentation provides a description of how individual requirements meet the business need for the project. Although the requirements documentation may provide useful information in developing the communications management plan, the requirements documentation addresses project requirements rather than communication requirements.

C. Conduct a communication requirements analysis
Correct. Analysis of communication requirements determines the information needs of the project stakeholders. These requirements are defined by combining the type and format of information needed with an analysis of the value of that information.

D. Consult the stakeholder engagement plan
Incorrect. The stakeholder engagement plan identifies the management strategies required to engage stakeholders effectively. These strategies are often fulfilled via communications. Although the stakeholder engagement plan serves as an input into the Plan Communications Management process, the information needs of the project stakeholders are determined by the analysis of communication requirements.
