It is well recognised that software requirements must accurately reflect the needs of a target domain, however, challenges still exist in effectively acheiving this. This paper reports on the results of an industry-based study investigating factors that affect the communication of requirements between the development team and other stakeholders during requirements development. Challenges found in practice are related to common obstacles reported in the literature. The paper concludes with a discussion of the findings including implications for Software Process Improvement (SPI) in requirements development
