The success of decentralization in rural areas heavily depends on the capacity of village government institutions, mainly the village officers, village council and village development committee. Through the case study in Serang, Kedarpan and Sumilir, it was found that the majority of individual capacity indicators were perceived to be good enough. However, institutional capacity is not simply the capacity of the members, but more importantly, their ability to work together to perform the tasks of the organization. In fact, capacity realization of most members is hampered by problems of weak coordination and low incentives. Therefore, for the success of decentralization, the government should overcome problems of weak coordination and provide incentives to these institutions
