1. INTRODUTION
This paper is divided into three (3) parts, namely the introduction, the fact(body) of the assignment and lastly, my submission which forms theconcluding part of the assignment.This paper highlights a new approach known as Politechnocrats Approachwhich emphasised the empowerment of the professionals (technocrats)working in conjunctions with the politicians for the purpose of goodgovernance and development to achieve service delivery to the populace.The origin of the word “governance” was explained with reference to thehistory and evolution of governance. Different definitions of governance wasexplored with two (2) different diagrams, one illustrating the meaning and whatgood governance is all about while the second diagram explain the features of good governance and the relationship between governance and developmentare also discussed.Different definitions of development and the relationship between governanceand development are discussed. Other areas the assignment covers are thetheories of development while under modernisation theory, politicalmodernisation development theory was discussed as a relevant theme to thesubmission of the fact in the assignment with reference to the adoptedapproach (final submission) of the writer in supporting the fact of theassignment and the new concept, Politechnocrats approach being advocatedfor by the writer.Conclusively, the writer was able to justify what politechnocrts approach is allabout and how all the stake holders; especially the technocrats will functionperfectly in democratic settings.

expected service delivery at home and be respected among the League of Nations with respect to their economic standards and the nations economyare also part of this write paper.
2. GOVERNANCE AND DEVELOPMENT
The adoption of political modernisation and development approach theory isvital to the practice of Politechnocrats approach (which is a an academicapproach invented by me with regards to this assignment) in general as amethod of governance that promotes rapid development and goodgovernance especially on the part of the population and the economy as itemphasised on the need for the progressives (technocrats) to join politics andbe political involved since the Political modernisation theory attributes lack of enough participation in politics by the technocrats in the politicalsuperstructure as one of the reasons for industrial underdevelopment in thethird world countries.This approach favours largely the combination of technocrats and politiciansin political partnership to produce good governance and service delivery.
3. GOVERNANCE 
Historically, the word governance can be traced back to the Greek verb
‘kubernam’ 
meaning to plot or to steer and it was used by Pluto with regardsto how to design a system of rule. The Greek term gave rise to the MedievalLatin ‘gubernare’, which has the same connotation of piloting rule making or steering. This word is what we now have in English as ‘Governance’The word governance means different things to many people and arriving at acommon and acceptable meaning is by understanding various definitions fromauthors on this subject.Governance can be defined as ‘The traditions and institutions by whichauthority in a country is exercised’-Kaufman et al. To him, governance isbasically a way of exercising authority.

In order to attain sustainable development and econmic growth, the best principle approaches to governance standards have to prevail.
