You have just been authorised to manage a project. What should be your next step?
a) Develop proj mgnt plan
b) Create WBS
c) Identify stakeholders
d) Start working on the project charter

Option # (C) Identify Stakeholders is the right choice as the Project/Project Manager has been authorized i.e., Develop Project Charter Process is completed.

Agreed. But the project charter already contains the stakeholder list. Please refer to Pg. 72 of PMBOK

Though the PM is given the list - PM did not identify them :-) - he should know who are they.So C is right.

Otherwise there would not any specific process called identify stakeholders at all - we have the list then why there should a process - saying identify at all.to identify is most important.

Create charter is where PM gets authorized AND
next 'identify stake holders' comes in INITIATION - see the PMBOK process table - phase wise.

..authorised to manage a project..


Look at those words. Authorized to MANAGE A PROJECT. The Develop Project charter process has been completed and start from Identify Stakeholders then remaining rest of them. The stakeholders in the Project are only High level stakeholders. In Project charter everything High Level.
