NEED FOR NETWORKS:

Today, networks are a firmly entrenched facet of virtually every aspect of society and exist just about everywhere in the world. The utility of networks in the international development field has been well acknowledged by many donors

The Benefits of Network Membership
The benefits that are perceived to be associated with network are plentiful. Some of the most commonly cited benefits for network members are: increased access to information; expertise and financial resources; increased efficiency; a multiplier effect, which increases the reach and impact available to member organizations; solidarity and support; and increased visibility of issues, best practices, and underrepresented groups. Other important perceived benefits are risk mitigation, reduced isolation, and increased credibility, particularly for developing NGOs. There are significant risks to network membership as well, so NGOs that are contemplating participation in a network should undertake a cost/benefit analysis to determine whether or not network participation will meet their particular needs.

The Impact of Networks on NGO Capacity
The contribution of NGO networks to building the organizational capacity of their members is complex and multifaceted. Essentially, the purpose of NGO organizational capacity building is to enable NGOs to be self-confident, independent, creative, and effective organizations that make a difference in the lives of the people, communities, and countries that they serve, as well as make a contribution to the thinking and practice in their fields. Network interventions take into account the entire organization and the context in which it operates, and recognize how changes in one part of the organization impact others. Organizational capacity building efforts appreciate that today's NGOs need a new set of core capacities, which can powerfully determine the future of the organization.

AIVO - APPROACH

Created for a variety of purposes and embody a variety of structures - Depending on what is perceived to be the optimal way to achieve a certain goal, the Structure of a network varies.
Informal and formal associations - Informal networks often arise in response to a specific case or situation, while formal networks form with explicit qualifications for membership and clearly articulated management and communication structures.
More than just a resource center for its members - There is a great deal of variation in terms of expected member contribution and benefits. Though knowledge and information sharing are important activities of most networks, the core of the network is the relationships among its members.

AIVO PHILOSOPHY
  • Leading from the outside in
  • Being cognizant of the external environment and seeking ways to adapt accordingly
  • Mobilizing energy from the power source of network members
  • Fostering trust and empowerment
  • Coaxing members out of their comfort zones
  • Viewing themselves as "lead learners" in the network; and nurturing other network members to become leaders in their own right
