Same action, different views (according to group) - is it possible?

Is there a way to "manipulate" an action according to the group the user belongs to?

I want the same action to present view_mode as "tree,form" to users from group A and "kanban,tree,form,calendar" to users from group B.

Having two different actions (with two different menus) is an easy thing but, since users from group B also belong to group A, they will be presented with two menu links.

I'm starting to believe the only way to do this is to create a group for the "lower level" action and then, add users individually to it so that group inheritance won't apply.
