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 in other words strategy document is nothing but a direction you set at the start of the testing project and should demonstrate the approach you are going to take to meet the software test goals.

A typical test strategy document should contain.

-The overall goal of the testing
-What will be validated (high level)
- Where (environment) it is to be tested in
- Types of QA/testing which will be carried out(both functional and non functional)
- What tools will be needed for testing (you may already have everything, but it’s part of setting parameters of the project / test)
- Testing levels and what are the entry and exit criteria for each level?

Where as a Test plan is written at a later stage of the project. Typically, when the user cases are ready and design and requirement documents are almost frozen. The plan describes the tasks, resources, and schedule to implement the strategy along with other elements such as environments and entry and exit criteria.
