Quantifying Group Problem Solving with Stochastic Analysis

Wen Dong, Alex 'Sandy' Pentland


Quantifying the relationship between group dynamics and group performance is a key issue of increasing group performance. In this paper, we will discuss how group performance is related to several heuristics about group dynamics in performing several typical tasks. We will also give our novel stochastic modeling in learning the structure of group dynamics. Our performance estimators account for between 40 and 60% of the variance across range of group problem solving tasks.
