Although it is important to understand where you are (Current Model), where you are going (Target Model) and why you are going there (Strategy Model), it is usually impossible and/or not desirable to create a huge plan of work to move there in one step.

As in planning a very long journey, you will need to make “Pit-stops” on the way, and you may have to visit various other “Way-points” on the way. “Pit-Stops” equate to the request for and provision of annual budgets providing the fuel to continue the journey.

Pit stops can also equate to knowledge. As we move along the Enterprise’s journey, there is learning. At the next pit stop, more knowledge than before is available and this knowledge will impact, favourably, the journey's execution (either by facilitating achievement of the next objective, reducing consumption of resources or speeding up decision-making and change throughout the journey. {{Pedro Correa}}

“Way-points” equate to the business objectives which must be accomplished along the road to the “Destination” or Target Model.

An Intermediate Model is a statement of intent for some time in the future. The time it relates to usually equates to a particular objective although Intermediate Models can also be time based such as yearly, quarterly, etc.
