Dynamic governance results from capacity building to carry out development activities and adaptive policies to produce effective policies. The application of dynamic governance in village government involves three instruments of dynamic thinking: thinking ahead, thinking againand thinking across, with the aim that villages can be adaptive and be able to institutionalize cultural values to spread a spirit of innovation to support prosperous development activities. This research was conducted by interactive qualitative analysis, starting with data collection, data condensation, data display, and drawing conclusions. The informants in this research are village government heads, stakeholders, and community leaders. Snowball sampling was used to collect informants while allowing them to express themselves freely. The results of the study show that by thinking ahead, the stakeholders build a mutually agreed-upon vision and mission and act progressively to build a modern village. In the pattern of "rethinking," stakeholders take advantage of village institutional meetings to review it repeatedly to improve work plans toward productive activities from their natural resources. Meanwhile, as a sustainable social welfare pendulum, stakeholders build social networks with outsiders to seek other resources such as financial assistance and expertise. This study adds to extended knowledge of governance practices at a local level in relation to rural development programs implementation in Indonesia.
