Test Plan is a document that collects and organizes test cases by functional areas and/or types of testing in a form that can be presented to the other teams and/or customer where as the Test Strategy is the documented approach to testing. It describes how the product risks of the stakeholders are mitigated at the test-level, which types of test are to be performed, and which entry and exit criteria apply. Test Plan is prepared by the tester whereas the Test Strategy is prepared by the QA Manager or QA lead. Both are important pieces of Quality Assurance processes since they help communicate the test approach scope and ensure test coverage while improving the efficiency of the testing effort. Test Plan can be used to communicate externally whereas Test Strategy is for internal use only.

11. Test delivarables
12. Staff and training needs
13. Responsibilities
14. Schedule
15. Risk and mitigation
16. Approach



Test Strategy : Test Strategy or Test Approach is a set of guide lines that describes test design. Test strategy says - How testing is going to be performed? What will be the test architecture?

1. Scope and objective
2. Business issues
3. Roles and responsibilities
4. Communication and status reporting
5. Test deliverability
6. Test approach
