Hi everybody!

I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me find the translation into Spanish of the word "strawman". The context is both technical and financial and the sentence where the term appears is as follows:

"Assess where gaps exist and agree strawman plans to close them"

Thanks in advance!

    Encontré esta definición en Wikipedia:
    A "straw-man proposal", also known as an Aunt Sally, is a brainstormed simple business proposal intended to generate discussion of its disadvantages and to provoke the generation of new and better proposals. Often, a straw man document will be prepared by one or two people prior to kicking off a larger project. In this way, the team can jump start their discussions with a document that is likely to contain many, but not all the key aspects to be discussed. As the document is revised, it may be given other edition names such as the more solid-sounding "stone-man", "iron-man", and so on, etc.[citation needed]
    The succession of names comes from the requirements document for the programming language Ada. In this document, the various stages were Strawman, Woodman, Tinman and Ironman. Later, another Ada document added the following sequence of men: Sandman, Pebbleman and Stoneman.[citation needed]

    Me parece que esto cuadra dentro de tu contexto. No sé si exista una palabra específica, pero en todo caso no creo que sea "hombre de paja", pues esta expresión en español tiene otro significado (falacia del hombre de paja, también puedes buscarlo en Wikipedia).
    Espero haber sido de ayuda.

    Desde ya, muchas gracias por su colaboración!
