The principles of planning Planning and control

Just what should be planned? How much detail should a plan contain? How long should an average task take? How many stages should a project have? It would be helpful if there were some simple rules of thumb for answering such questions. However, every plan will be different in terms of its detail, the amount of risk it carries, or the way it has been structured. The best way to proceed is to plan what you wish to control. For example, if a manager asks for project progress reports to be provided at agreed intervals, the plan must have identified clear milestones that are delivered at the same frequency otherwise one report will change very little from the previous one.
