By focusing on regional forestry and water resources planning processes in Finland , this paper analyses how plan-ability is created and maintained in practice. The results suggest it depends on material arrangements that operate at two levels. Those of the first level enable focusing of analytical sight and deliberation, allowing the planning object to shape up. On the second level, acceptance of the object configuration can be enhanced by disconnecting the plan, or parts of it, from the operational core of policy making. It concludes that the concept points to the experimental nature of planning, inviting attention to the forces and trajectories that condition policy integration and collaborative policy making
