Portuguese term or phrase: CADERNO DE ORIENTAÇÃO ESTRATÉGICA
I'm asking for advice on wording rather than a straight translation. This is the title of a major multinational study of the future shape of the armed forces of Timor-Leste, with clear recommendations.

It's ORIENTAÇÃO that worries me. "guidance" isn't right, nor are "guidelines" or, probably, "recommendations". I'm toying with translating the whole phrase as "Strategic Blueprint".

Any bright ideas?
