Abstract: Networks pose different challenges than conventional organisations. This publication showcases 5 different networks’ stories written by the key persons involved, the co-authors of this publication. These stories reflect on each network’s context at the time and what the key persons did in order to enhance the health of their network. It also shows the key persons’ quests to transform their networks and the impact the action research had on the former. For analysis purposes used the Free Actors in Networks (FAN) approach was used, which provided a different way of looking at network relations and at who plays a role in improving network connectivity. The action research was initiated by PSO in April 2010 with four Dutch development organisations and a network secretariat based in the Netherlands. These organisations are involved in North-South networks and wanted to understand the perspectives of their network partners.
