Even as some communities in the developed world are becoming more skilled in administrative skills because of their increasingly complex relations and tasks, other communities are losing control of their organization. A community's elected officials may be volunteers whose training for administration and time for research is limited and vaguely defined. Members of the community may be unclear on the lines of responsibility. Many villages rely heavily on the heads of families for their community leadership. Other individuals hesitate to take the lead as they feel unqualified, or do not fit their own stereo-typed image of appropriate leadership.
