In this paper we present the results of an empirical study conducted within small and very small software developing enterprises in Austria. The primary goals of this survey were to find out how they are structured, to learn more about their characteristics, and how they organize software development. Furthermore we evaluate methods, processes, techniques and tools used, persons and roles involved, and finally problems occurring during software development. Additionally we place a special focus on quality management issues and discuss which motivations small and very small enterprises can have to install such a quality management system.
