Depending on which Intermediate Model is being defined, its
scope, depth and detail is really a function of how far that model is in the
future. If it’s the next intermediate model in terms of time, then it will be
almost as detailed as the current model. For Intermediate Models that are
further in the future, their depth and detail get less and less as they become
more aspirational the more into the future they project.
Note that for Roadmapping, we are referring here to the
Conceptual layer. The Logical, Physical and Operational layers get populated
and filled out as the projects in the roadmap execute.
The information to populate the intermediate model(s) should
be provided by an analysis of the Strategy, Current and Target Models. However
some Intermediate Model(s) may already exist in the Enterprise in terms of
diagrams, drawings and spreadsheets.
Populating the Interim Model(s) is usually done when
sufficient clarity is known about one or more objectives.
This usually occurs during Annual Business Planning but can
also occur at any time during the year dependent upon the timescales related to
Provision: Strategic Planning Team.
QA: The Board & Senior Management.
Modelling: Anyone trained in the tool being used.
Update: Strategic Planning Team.
Populating the Intermediate Model(s) is the result of
analysing the Strategy Model, the Current Model (if it exists) and the Target
Model (if it exists).
