Consulting and Coaching

Project Consulting

We accompany you in your operational project business, e.g. in the conduction of a business process analysis or, of course, in the elicitation, consolidation and documentation of system requirements. We develop your architecture and support you in many other project activities.

Definition of Methods and Processes

A key assignment of our consultants is the definition of a procedure, methodology and techniques for developing a system or software. We conform to standards and, when adapting them, we slip in best practices out of our long-term experience. That is how requirements for e.g. the conduction of the analysis optimally consider your corporate- and project-specific boundary conditions.


Benefit from our longstanding experience in launching new procedures professionally. Besides the technical aspects, such as the conjunction to existing processes or tools already in use, the people involved in the project are what we care about most.

…and what does SOPHIST do apart from all that?

Lectures and Workshops

From individual lectures to workshops to camps lasting several days – In consultation with you, we tailor our service to your particular needs and wishes.


The SOPHISTs organize their own requirements engineering symposium – the SOPHIST DAYS. This two-day event captivates its participants every year due to its well balanced mixture of lectures from luminaries in the RE-world, experience reports and workshops. The number of participants is limited.

Books and Publications
