Remotely Manage Local Users/Groups

How can I remotely add users and create groups on computers in a domain?

I know I can use the net group command to create a group on the computer and then add accounts either local or domain-ones to the groups.

Is there a way to extend this functionality to make it remote?

Ultimately, I would like to just add a user temporarily to the administrators group of the computers and then remove him.

Could I use net group to accomplish this on 10+ computers?

I was also thinking putting all the computer accounts into an OU that has  GP in place that puts that user in the administrators group for all the PCs.

Shed some light?
