I'm looking for a word or phrase to mean: “mapping existing and ongoing steps into a larger future plan that commences now”.
I was thinking about "conforming execution" or "collapsing and initiating plan".
Is there a better word or phrase?

There are already some great suggestions here, but I might consider amalgamated
'We have amalgamated our plans'
amalgamate - Combine or unite to form one organization or structure
I concede it does not necessarily give consideration to a larger view. It gives the impression that the integration is strong and well thought through, however.
How about "consolidating"? It essentially means "to merge", but is associated with an improvement over an existing baseline.
"Sequence". Your wording implies to me that the steps are known, but it is not known when they should be executed. They may be sequenced for the benefit of the one carrying out the steps.
