Ah, see, in the end it all comes down to judgement calls you make based on
things you've learned and you're experience.  I'm sure everyone that is
running a project thinks they are trading off too much planning with too
little about right.  The problem is you can't quantitatively measure this
and decide where the right level is.  Telling someone to plan, but not
excessively or overly detailed is meaningless.  You might as well walk in,
tell them all to do a good job, then leave.  Do you really expect them to
say "Good idea, we didn't think of that"?
