A language in computer science is not just a tool, the language defines essential aspects of the software management process. The language determines persons/actors/roles in the development/management team, the type of solution strategy, the description of the project, the cooperation with other teams, and the definition of the process. We are using workflows: The workflow language defines a problem decomposition to sub-workflows and tasks. We analyzed this language by a systematic method to nail down the software management process definition and to describe all relevant aspects of software management. This method is ßMACH and based on ßMACH we can provide the finding that the workflow language strongly defines a wide set of management aspects. As a result, we can state that the impact of a language is non-negligible.
