I have been involved in small industry for 33 years and I have seen how the evolution of computers and software has affected small companies striving to grow in their market place by trying to take advantage of an evolving technology. Many times an individual is assigned the task of developing software to fit the company's needs and begins the process without any formal training in the practices of Software Engineering. My Thesis will discuss my evolving skills, gained through my Masters in Software Engineering degree work, as a Software Engineer and how I have been able to implement proper Software Engineering in my position in a small company. This has been a worthwhile challenge and the results of my work and study could benefit any person involved in the Software Engineering profession. The focus of this paper will be the challenges of requirements elicitation in a small industry environment.
