I am striking out with the Set-ADGroup option if that is the correct one to use.

I want to change the tittle of all AD users of a certain AD group .

Ex .. Change tittle to  "New Tittle" for all members of Group1

do you mean the job title? if so

#run this to make sure it got the groups that you want to make changes before place into #the script

get-adgroup -filter * -searchbase "the OU" | ? {$ -like " something"}

Script start here
#search for the groups that you want to make changes
$groups = get-adgroup -filter * -searchbase "the OU" | ? {$ -like " something"}
foreach ($Group in $groups)
#get the group (each group of the searched and set the user title to "your title"
get-adgroupmember -id $ | set-aduser -title "your title"

If you are trying to work on single group then following code should work...
Get-ADGroupMember Group1 | ?{$_.objectClass -EQ "User"} | Set-ADUser -Title "New Tittle"

he needs to do more than 1 group.............

you can also place your group name to a txt or cvs file

and do the import

$groups = get-content "path.txt"

foreach ($Group in $groups)
#get the group (each group of the searched and set the user title to "your title"
get-adgroupmember -id $group| set-aduser -title "your title"
