Would you please tell me what the antonym of this expression?
Can we also say, 'we're ahead of our plans'?
COCA gives only one example each of 'ahead of our plan' and 'ahead of plan', and none for 'ahead of our plans' or 'ahead of plans.
There's nothing grammatically wrong with these expressions - it just seems that we don't use them.
PS * 'To plan' means '[conformant] to [the] plan'; it isn't an analogue of 'to do'. When a businessman/woman boasts about something being 'to plan' s/he isn't saying they have yet to be planned. (Except when s/he is, of course; context is everything).
