What test strategy is an essential part of a software testing process?

akh profile image Alex K. ・1 min read

Test strategy outlines general ways of and approaches to testing, describes the main issues and improvements of the testing process. This is a plan of a system or module testing, based on the functional specifics and dependence from other system or platform components.

Being the key document for any testing team, it, as a rule, answers the following questions:
• Does the functionality-under-test work?
• What actions must be performed, what tools should be used to achieve testing objectives?
• What exactly functionality will be tested?
• When can the results of this testing process be expected?
• How to minimize testing costs?

No wonder that test strategy is an essential part of the general testing plan. Sometimes, a customer wants to control the testing process to reveal possible misinterpretation of the testing issues at the early stage. Test strategy together with the testing plan provides a clear and full picture of the whole process and gives:

  • Test tasks analysis and their division into components.
  • Test section definition.
  • More precise insight into testing issues.

This is the right time to plan your next test strategy, right?
