Similarities between Pest and Talent Management!

Having just put the finishing touches to my presentation for the upcoming talk to 300+ Golf Course Superintendents on Embracing Leadership, the organizers called and mentioned that the talk needs to comply with certification requirements of the society...can I 'tweek' my presentation please?!!!

TWEEK...re-think is closer to the mark...On reading the 'criteria' I found that there are strong similarities between Integrated Pest Management - IPM (http://bit.ly/5OcjFc) and Talent Management...apart from the obvious. So 'tweeking' it is...

4 Stages of IPM: 1. Set Action Thresholds 2. Monitor and Identify Pests 3. Prevention 4. Control

4 Stage of Talent Management: 1. Develop and Set Action Control Points 1. Identify Talent Requirements 3. Internal Re-structuring 4. External Targeted Solutions

The only area of non-similarity I can see is during the 4th Stage of IPM - Control - when they talk about 'disrupting pest mating'...don't want to consider that even when working with a Family run business.
