My books

Based on my experience in the industry related areas of safety and risk management between 1968 and 2015, I wrote two books:

  1. Risk Management, Safety and Control of Loss: Protecting Your Organization - an    Introduction (2014)    
  2. Making Your Future - in Business and in Other Parts of Life (2015)   

In this 2014 book I tried to underline the importance of those three areas to the ongoing success of organizations, businesses. These areas have the same purpose: to reach objectives while controlling unwanted events and loss, any type of loss.

The 2015 book shows how to put things to work, to build a successful plan to reach objectives and controlling unwanted events; a plan involving all taht need to be involved to reach success. 

I wrote my books with the non-expert in safety and risk management in mind but, at the same time, these books would also serve (safety) the expert to communicate the importance of their work areas as part of shared interets and objectives. Both books are based on the principles concepts and ideas of the management function. 

Risk Management, Safety and Control of Loss - Protecting Your Organization

This 314-page book contains an introduction to Risk management, Safety and Loss Control. This book puts these subjects in the proper business perspective showing their relation in the control of unwanted events that downgrade business efficiency, profitability, image and continuation. 

Understanding how these areas contribute to business results is essential to managing any business or organization and crucial to those who work as consultants - either internally or externally - assisting their management or client on their way to lasting profitability and success. 

Priced at $ 20 (excluding shipping, taxes), Risk Management, Safety and Control of Loss can be ordered via CreateSpace.

Making Your Future in Business - and in Other Parts of Life 

This 346-page book is actually the successor of the book that I published in 2013 with the title “How to Build a Management System that Works – Guide to Management Success”. Since the 2015 book came out, I wirdrew the 2013 from publication.

  

Based on sound principles of management, this book uses the Platform Improvement Model as the basis for the 17-step process for management success to build a plan (or management system) to make the future, in business and in other parts of life.

 

"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 quibbling 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."

This process includes the subsequent steps allowing a top-down / bottom-up approach to involve all levels of the organization while providing the emotional ownership needed to obtain desired behavior leading to success.  

  

Using and adapting this 17-step process when helping organizations to improve, the consultant – internal or external - will be able to create his or her own approach based on the successes of his or her clients. How much better can the basis of your marketing efforts be?

"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."
