When people work in groups, there are two separate issues involved. The first is the task and the problems involved in getting the job done. Frequently this is the only issue that the group considers. The second is the process of how the group works together. The group needs to act as one unit to accomplish its task or tasks. However, without due attention to this process, the value of the group can be diminished or even destroyed. In this paper, our goal is to enhance the reader's knowledge on the formation of a group, its cohesion, how leadership influences a group, group norms and how changing group norms affects the group itself.
