ABSTRACT

This study assumed that the role of a leader who can lead the local residents and organization is important for the development of rural areas. To ascertain the hypothesis, transformational leadership, one of the core competencies of the village leaders, was measured. The result showed that rural villages led by leaders with a high transformational leadership have deep knowledge about financial and non-financial operating performance of village projects and also had high annual sales. In addition, it showed that there were differences in the number of educations in a year, agreements with outside networks, and the achieved licenses of the villagers. It can be interpreted as rural village project is closely related to the core competencies of the village leader. These facts can lead to the interpretation that there is a close relationship between the leader’s transformational leadership competence and the performance of the village project. In this research, we put a meaning on the fact that not only the perception of project’s outcome but the focus was also on the comparison of the annual sales based on the leader’s transformational leadership. In order for the village project to be more successful and be continuously developed in the future, we can conclude that more diverse educational training and human resources developing policies are needed for village leaders and core manpower.
