"Succeding in writing a good book is rather based on
  using an eraser than a pencil"

                                                Gottfried Benn (1886-1956)

You have arrived at the SOPHIST library. Here you will find information on our own books or other books in which we were significantly involved as co-authors.

Many years ago, our customers asked us frequently if we could provide all our consulting and coaching experiences by collecting and compiling them, for example, in a book. At that time, our answer to that question was "no". Over the years, however, we have noticed that writing books can also be fun. And this in such a way that today, as a result, there is a considerable number of books with considerable circulation figures. Look and see!

Our books are only available in German language, however, there is a variety of useful technical articles, text excerpts and additional materials in our download area. Simply send us an e-mail with your contact data and address at and you will receive your personal access data to our member download area.

Chris Rupp & Dr. Klaus Pohl

In practice, requirements engineering tasks become more and more complex. In order to ensure a high level of knowledge and training, the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) worked out the training concept “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering”, which defines a requirements engineer’s practical skills on different training levels. The book covers the different subjects of the curriculum for the “Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering” (CPRE) defined by the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB). It supports its readers in preparing for the test to achieve the “Foundation Level” of the CPRE.
