We need Test Strategy for the following reasons:
1. To have a signed, sealed, and delivered document, where the document contains details about the testing methodology, test plan, and test cases.
2. Test strategy document tells us how the software product will be tested.
3. Test strategy document helps to review the test plan with the project team members.
4. It describes the roles, responsibilities and the resources required for the test and schedule.
5. When we create a test strategy document, we have to put into writing any testing issues requiring resolution.

The test strategy is decided first, before lower level decisions are made on the test plan, test design, and other testing issues.

Test Strategy helps testers/testing team define the approach to test an application.
This approach is what will eventually lead to an excellent quality of product which can be released to the end user/client.
Test Strategy is expected to be ready/prepared in the design phase of the project or even earlier.
This is done in order to discover any missing requirements and to define the testing scope and test coverage in a better and well organized manner.
Test Strategy should not be confused with Test Plan.
Test plan is derived from the Test Strategy devised.
A project may have multiple Test Plans as per the project (small or big) but only one Test Strategy.
