Why

The Intermediate Model(s) defines WHERE the Enterprise wants to get to and WHEN. The Strategy Model defines WHY they want to get there. The Portfolio Model(s) defines HOW the Enterprise will achieve that transition, by defining the Programmes, Projects and Initiatives that are required.

Scope

The scope, depth and detail of the Portfolio Model(s) is not meant to provide detailed project plans. The Portfolio Model(s) should provide only enough detail to be able to organise all of the change required to move from one state (Current or Intermediate Model) to another state (Intermediate or Target Model).

In addition, the scope, depth and detail of the Portfolio Model(s) will get less and less the further into the future they get.

Source

Initially an Enterprise will almost certainly already have one or more Portfolio Models in spreadsheets, documents and/or in portfolio analysis tools. Therefore, initially, the Portfolio Models may not be the optimum mix depending upon the Intermediate state the Enterprise wishes.

In this situation the Portfolio Model and the resultant linkages back to an Intermediate Model may well illustrate shortcoming of the existing portfolio.

As time progresses however, the Portfolio Model(s) will increasingly get their information and become much more dependent upon the Intermediate Model(s).

When

Predominantly during the Annual Business Planning cycle, although adjustments may need to be made as the year progresses.
