    Re: Test Strategy

    Do a search - there have been huge discussions about this.

    In my option - a test plan tells all the details, down to who, when, and what. "The login test case will be tested by Anne on the morning of Feb 18th..."

    A strategy is higher level. It's an approach. "functionality will be tested manually the first time that functionality is released in a formal build and will be automated for regression after it passes manually testing."

    Personally, I don't like test plans. I live by test strategies and what I call "mini-plans" Which are plans developed as needed to accomplish the current task at hand.
