15.3: Group Problem Solving
Please read this section, which details seven steps that can characterize problem solving in groups. Of particular note is the table that introduces an example of a cost-benefit analysis for a set of solutions proposed to solve a hypothetical problem.

The final three videos in Professor Guy's lecture series are presented here. By this point, you should have gained a thorough understanding of what it takes to work in, lead and manage a group. One way to insure that you retain this material is to look back to groups you have participated in in the past. Can you recall instances in any of those groups which could be explained by the knowledge you now have about group dynamics? Take a moment before you continue to apply Professor Guy’s lectures to your own experiences.
