We propose a new method to reduce the cost of computing nonlinear terms in projection based reduced order models with global basis functions. We develop this method by extending ideas from the group finite element (GFE) method to proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and call it the group POD method. Here, a scalar two-dimensional Burgers' equation is used as a model problem for the group POD method. Numerical results show that group POD models of Burgers' equation are as accurate and are computationally more efficient than standard POD models of Burgers' equation.AMS subject classifications: 35R35, 49J40, 60G40
