It is an interesting approach you take as well on management systems. When I first started to work in this industry I asked the question "what is a management system" to so many people, from auditors to my operations manager and everyone had different ideas and definitions, so at the end I only had a vague idea of the concept. I think from now on, when I get asked the question by my friends or family, I'll simply use your definition, it is much simpler and it makes sense! Thanks for that.

Your name was always included in any discussion of world leaders in safety and health/loss control/risk management, and as a progressive thinker you were a huge influence around the world.

I like the way that you make it simple and clear especially the safety flavor. I would like to buy (a) hard copy (of your book) as well. I am lucky to know people like you with your experience and learn from them.

Willem Top is kind of a legend in safety - at least in The Netherlands and Belgium. Willem delivers an easy to read, practical and rather unpretentious view on how a management system can be built with the help of a number of basic elements/principles. The proposed elements for the management system sound sensible. Sure, I would have made a slightly different cluster than Top’s 17 steps, but that’s quibling over details in definitions. He does propose an alternative rating for his 17 step approach as a measure for implementation. And whether you use the rating or not, it is a fine (check)list of points to consider when building and implementing your management system.

 ... thank you very much for the copy of your book. It is really interested and gives nice step by step approach, and even more gives a lead to other tools that should be used to improve the management system you want to implement or maybe improve.   ..... I wish you many readers and public to read and implement the system using your methodology.

"Thank you for the book which was received a few weeks ago. You did a great job pulling it all together into something that has been missing in the development and implementation of management systems, and I can see how it could easily fit into a course for general business majors."
