Many people often get confused by the terms test strategy and test plan and what are the differences between them. In this article let us try to clear that doubt. When a project gets initiated, we create the test strategy first. Test-Strategy will tell how to go about testing a business requirement or feature. It details the approach that you will implement to ensure that the product is ready for shipping by release date. This will include the high level functional and non functional test-scripts that you run based on the requirements. So...

What is Test Planning? This is the selection of techniques and methods to be used to validate the product against its approved requirements and design.In this activity we assess the software application risks, and then develop a plan to determine if the software minimizes those risks.We document this planning in a Test Plan document.Explanation of different sections in a typical test plan Document Signoff: Usually a test plan document is a contract between testing team and all the other teams involved in developing the product including...

Software Testing RisksAs project manager identifies and manages potential problems which can occur and affect the success of project such as – cost overruns, attrition of key resources etc. similarly Test manager should also identify key risks related to testing process. Test manager should also assess the exposure and probability for the risk factor and report the results of that analysis. These results help in identifying mitigation and contingency plan. The testing process is fundamentally a risk-based activity. Starting from writing...
