Here's a quick function that works for me:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun my-org-agenda-change-sorting-strategy (strategy)
  "Change the sorting strategy."
  (interactive (list
                (completing-read "Choose a strategy: "
                                 (mapcar 'cdr (cdr org-sorting-choice))
                                 nil t)))
  ;; adjust the following types as needed - e.g., add 'agenda, etc.
  (org-agenda-check-type t 'todo 'tags 'search)
  (let ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy (list (intern strategy))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
