Strategic vs Operational Plans

A strategic plan is related to aligning the organization to its environment in the long term. So it emphasizes effectiveness (doing the right things), is general and scientific analysis can be mixed with intuition.
An operational plan, which could be tactical and operational, is a plan to execute a strategic plan in the intermediate and short term and it involves resources and time. So it emphasizes efficiency (using resources wisely, or doing the things right).
