R&D projects involve complex technical issues, uncertain futures, many stakeholders, and complex value issues. To make the best R&D portfolio decisions, R&D managers need to assess how their portfolio supports internal strategies to meet external needs. The paper describes a portfolio analysis done for a major intelligence community R&D organization. We surveyed customers to understand their future needs for intelligence information. Based on customer needs, we qualitatively and quantitatively defined the potential future value of intelligence capabilities. The R&D organization leadership specifically requested the development of a value model with audacious objectives that would challenge the R&D managers and technologists. The portfolio was analyzed from multiple perspectives: future customer value, R&D strategy, functional area balance, value gaps and time. The multiple perspective analysis gave insights not normally obtained in typical portfolio analyses that examine benefit and cost.
