How would you define the term 'Development'?

The term 'development' is very complex and confusing and I'm having a little problem defining it. I wanted to know, how others define it, what are their perspectives on the term 'development'?

Development comes down to positive transformation. It can be growth, construction, invention, research ,or the products of these, either from one state to one that is better or from nothingness into something positive.
