How do I remove a small stripped screw?


I need to replace -a flat battery in one of my home alarm sensors. There is a cover which is screwed in holding the battery in place. There is a tiny screw here which has been very badly stripped, that I need to remove and reuse for the new battery. What is the step by step technique for removing this tiny soft-metaled screw?
