At organizational level, the managers have been able to establish a local non-governmental organization named PKBM Yotama that aimed to train and assist people in entrepreneurial and tourism activities. Unfortunately, these institutions have so many weaknesses in coordination system and showed a dominant leadership model by the founder of the institution in making variety rules and policies related to the management of tourism village.
