Who We Are

CTS is a partnership which specialises in people development, process improvement and project management.  We are based in Maidenhead and have been in business for over ten years. Our clients look to us to advise on, design, and deliver programmes to develop their people and improve the way they work.  In our work we engage people at all levels and roles and are known for our simple yet effective ideas and solutions.  

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler."   

Albert Einstein


What we do


Learning and Development

Our clients look to us to advise on, design and deliver selective programmes to develop their people. These can include senior or middle managers, graduates and trainee managers, newly-formed project teams, or client facing teams.

We are able to combine one to one coaching with workshop sessions and outdoor team and  leadership events whenever appropriate.

Project management and Performance Improvement

We believe that leaders and managers need to have a project management mentality when planning and implementing change. We help by designing or refining frameworks and processes needed to support this.

Business processes need to be closely aligned with the people who use them. Wherever this alignment becomes distorted (often due to business change) this can lead to inefficiency and even conflict!  Our clients ask us to look at selected business processes and propose, design and implement solutions with the necessary training and support.
