I’ve been told that my job interview tomorrow, I’ll be asked a question about the organisation’s corporate plan. Help me brainstorm possible questions and answers.

Background: Role is senior professional level at a megacorp. I’d be providing advice and support to the head of the (large, important) area I’m interviewing in.
I am, of course, reading up on the plan like crazy, as well as reviewing everything I can about this area of the company. But I have somehow never been asked anything like this in an interview (although I’ve always read the plans and reports for anywhere I’ve interviewed!) and I’m feeling a bit rudderless as I try and wade through it all. I’m guessing they’ll want to know something about how I’d judge some potential activity in the area against the plan. But I’m only guessing.
What d'you think they might they ask me? What should I demonstrate in my answer? Even better, are you a senior (second to CEO level) executive? What skills would you want your senior advisor to demonstrate in this situation?
