Test Plan:

It 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 TL.It depends on what the test plan is needed 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.

Test strategy:

It describes 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 separate document.



Test strategy is prepared by test manger as a detail document.

   Test strategy is the i/p deliverable for test plan.
