A Google search...

    * for
      carrying out a plan
      returns 23.400.000 pages

    * for
      executing a plan
      returns 7.290.000 pages

    * for
      implementing a plan
      returns 28.600.000 pages

Probably the definition should not use a single exclusive alternative.

Best regards,
Max.
