A plan is typically any diagram or list of steps with timing and resources, used to achieve an objective. See also strategy. It is commonly understood as a temporal set of intended actions, through which one expects to achieve a goal. For spatial or planar topologic or topographic sets see map.


Examples of plans

  • A very basic example of a plan: Perhaps you want to go see a movie at a specific time. First, you would look on a Web site for listings of movies in your area, then you would decide which one looks good (if any). Then you would secure transportation thereto, optionally but almost certainly also inviting one or more acquaintances to join you. You may have to adjust your time to when the movie actually starts. This procedure would be a plan to go see a movie.
