Answer / mfsi_krushnas

A Test Plan describes the approach, Features to be tested,
Testers assigned, and whatever you plan for your project. A
Test Plan is usually prepared by Manager or Team Lead. That
is true but not exclusively. It depends on what the test
plan is intended for. Some companies have defined a test
plan as being what most would consider a test case. Meaning
that it is for one part of the functionality validation.

A strategy is how you are going to address testing for the
project. Some companies have a strategy or approach section
in the test plan, others have a seperate document.
