Design Thinking

// verb

EN Design thinking is an innovative method to resolve problems in a practical and creative way. It is based on the designer's approach to a problem where he focuses on three main elements of a product or solution: people, technology and business. Also, every aspect is approached with the customer in mind. The main goal is to produce a constructive solution to a problem. By considering present and future parameters of the problem, you can consider several alternative solutions. So, in fact, you write out different tracks and make sure all these tracks are analysed and tested. And, during the entire process, you leave enough room for iterations. This way, you come up with several solutions to eventually pick out one best suited end solution. Makes sense huh!


NL Design-denken is een innovatieve methode om op een praktische en creatieve manier problemen op te lossen. Het is gebaseerd op de aanpak van een designer ten opzichte van een probleem, waarbij hij focust op drie belangrijke elementen van een product of oplossing: mensen, technologie en het bedrijf. Elk aspect wordt benaderd met de klant in gedachten. Het grote doel is om een constructieve oplossing voor een probleem te bekomen. Door huidige en toekomstige parameters mee in overweging te nemen, kun je allerlei alternatieve oplossingen uitzoeken. Je schrijft verschillende trajecten uit en zorgt dat al die scenario’s geanalyseerd en getest worden. Tijdens dat proces laat je liefst nog genoeg ruimte voor iteraties. Zo kun je diverse oplossingen bedenken en er uiteindelijk de best passende eindoplossing uitkiezen. Klinkt allemaal logisch, niet?



What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).

So, you just talked to a developer and didn’t understand any of the words he/she used? If those words aren’t in our lexicon yet, we’ll translate them to human language for you.
