Planning without a State

It should be possible to do some economic planning through groups of anarcho-syndicalist federations getting together and collectively planning economic activity to be engaged in, then going back home and implementing it themselves. Since the same organizations plan as implement, and hopefully the base counts more than the top level planning facility, flexibility in implementation is assured in that if the plan doesn't completely work or there are problems with it the organizations on the ground can alter it and if needed call another meeting of federations to discuss the problems and come up with a revised plan. And not every nut and bolt would have to be planned out. With the flexibility of implementing it yourself comes authority with self management to exercise a greater initiative in manifesting the goals in reality. And the goals would also be integrated with real life instead of being a sort of oppressive presence over everything that had to be fulfilled or else.
