In order to enhance students’ employability and future prospects it is necessary to develop their problem solving competences through an Activity-Led Learning (ALL) approach. There exist several models and theories on problem based learning as a tool. However there has been less research on group interpersonal processes and interaction, which can have significant impact on the successful realization of the approach. In this paper, we propose a Group Performance Model in order to deploy ALL successfully in a master-level module, Network Planning and Management. The model facilitates individual inter-action and group formation in a structured process. A key advantage of this model is that it allows students to focus on the activity/task, rather than be distracted by issues such as inter-personal conflicts, by developing their understanding of group processes.
