Value Based Software Engineering (VBSE) deals with the development of economic driven software systems. In such systems, a business idea is implemented in order to gain the market leverage. For the realization of an idea, the requirements must be highly valuable. The valuable requirements can only be obtained from a key set of valuable stakeholders. Researchers presented different stakeholder identification and quantification (SIQ) approaches. The current approaches do not provide low level details in order to carry out the SIQ process, and most of these approaches deal at a very high level of abstraction. This paper focuses on the problems of existing SIQ process and identifies the key stakeholder attributes in order to streamline the SIQ process. In this research, a survey is conducted in the software industry of Pakistan and Malaysia. The survey reports the problems faced by the software industry in the SIQ process. Moreover, the key stakeholder attributes are also reported which may be used to solve the key problems of the SIQ process.
