What are the elements of a good plan that we should expect? Are there any podcasts that discuss the elements of a good plan and how to assess these elements?

Much of the context of the goal setting podcast and the recent on on reporting are essential to the plan.  It also depends on the level of the plan, scope and whether it is just the general strategy or includes implementation/tactics.

Above all else, the good plans have to include who has to do what by when, and assign responsibilities as to how that gets checked on/reported.

I just sat in on a strategy planning session at a fair-sized bank and they raved about how much learning they accumulate at the end of their projects by reviewing them.  I asked if they learned anything during the project and they said it was not part of the system they use.  So making sure you have learning points, methods of collection and dispersal are key.  Hope this helps.
