    Hello,
    I work for PhD in Management.org, a website that covers a variety of topics about the management field. We also strive to make our website a valuable resource for anyone who is interested in pursuing a PhD in management. To that end, through our own research, evaluating factors such as peer recommendations, web presence, and content quality, we’re developing a list of useful websites for managers entitled Top 100 Web Resources for Managers.
    We are pleased to inform you that we have nominated NOOP.NL for inclusion on our list!
    Should you be featured on the final list, we’ll provide you with a badge to display on your website and to promote your inclusion on your social media accounts.
    Once the list is published, we’ll be reaching out to other management bloggers and websites to ensure maximum recognition for your site.
    Additionally, if you wish to nominate another management blog or website that you feel is worthy of a spot on our list, please let us know. We’re still in the review and nomination stage.
