The developer’s role here is not trivial. As you contribute to this strategy document, keep these three points in mind:

If you are working on a large project, you need to formulate an overall Testing Strategy during the analysis phase. The Testing Strategy defines the overall approach to testing and describes how the testing process will ensure that the solution has the appropriate level of quality and reliability.

The Testing Strategy provides the overall guidelines from which all future testing decisions are made. A well-crafted Testing Strategy allows the rest of the testing process to be defined more effectively.

Testing Strategy needs to be understood and approved by the sponsor. If the strategy is accepted, there is a much better likelihood that the final solution will meet the customer’s expectations.
