I wonder what are the different ways that a series of books can be developed?

 

For example one way is a chronological family saga where  as the years pass younger character take center stage in later books.  Another example would be to have a story told over a number of books with each having their own story arch using the same core main characters.

 

Has anyone come across a series where each book contains a new central character and story but it is somehow connected either to a place or group?

That's what my romance novels and several others in the genre do. I've written about a group of friends and siblings, each one being the central character in their own book.

The Brides of Alba series by Linda Windsor. Each book focuses on one of three brothers and their love interest. 

 

The O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson does something similar. 

 

The only series I can think of that's connected by place is Narnia.
