I've been on both sides of this. It's a two-way street, and it'll fluctuate on "rules" depending on situations too.
The idea of a plan for the week followed up by list of what was done and what wasn't (mentioned earlier in the discussion) pretty well follows the management protocol I'm accustomed to. Scrum methodology pretty much revolves around that kind of thing too. (The management protocol I was trained in comes from massive efficiency and effectiveness studies done in the 50s and 60s and evolved since then. Predates scrum project management by a long time, but has enough parallels to be interesting.)
