Smith. Organizational challenges are many times disruptive to productivity. Group problem solving is the process of bringing together stakeholders who through their analytical decision making abilities can influence the outcome of the problem.

The use of groups in problem solving is encouraged as groups tend to evaluate diverse solutions and action plans. The apparently simple notion that it is contextualization and invocation of context that give form to our interpretations raises important questions about context definition.

Moreover, different disciplines involved in the elucidation and interpretation of meanings construe context indifferent ways. How do these ways differ. And what analytical strategies are adopted in order to. This is “Leadership, Roles, and Problem Solving in Groups”, chapter 14 from the book A Primer on Communication Studies (v.

Nearly all research on the accuracy of individual versus group decision making has used ad hoc groups, artificial problems, and trivial or nonexistent reward contingencies.

These studies have generally concluded that the knowledge base of the most competent group member appears to be the practical upper limit of group performance and that process gains will rarely be by: A comparative study of differences in subjective likelihood estimates made by individuals, interacting groups, Delphi groups, and nominal groups.

Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, 9, –Cited by: The context of our survey on context is for the cooperative problem solving by a human and a machine. In this broad framework, we study more specifically the link between context, explanation and incremental knowledge acquisition.

Thus, our survey of the literature on context has been made according to this point of view and may present a bias. The effect of group size in problem-based learning(PBL) on the problem-solving skill, self-directedness,and technical knowledge of 72 students in a dentaleducation program was examined.

Pretest measures onself-directedness and technical knowledge wereadministered to the 72 students. Equal numbers ofstudents with low, medium, and high levels ofself Cited by: the context of this Project, creative problem solving methods are methods that allow an individual to solve ill-structured problems or any situation where an individual is.

In this chapter we have explored problem-solving in groups. We have identified steps which groups can use to attack and solve problems, as well as several methods of reaching decisions.

We have considered the nature of group creativity and reviewed how brainstorming may contribute to creative problem-solving and decision-making.

Cooperative-group problem solving gives students a chance to practice the strategy until it becomes more natural. Groups can solve more complex problems than individuals, so students see the advantage of a logical problem-solving strategy early in the course.

Each individual can practice the planning and monitoring skills they need to become.

It is not a good one to start with. Read about psychology of problem solving. I'd say 'Mathematical Problem Solving' by Alan Schoenfeld. Paul Zeitz has written a fantastic book which speaks a lot about psychology of problem solving quite a bit/5(17).

Problem solving is a more complex process in which groups analyze a problem and develop a plan of action for solving the problem or reducing the problem’s harmful effects.
