Design Thinking - a creative way to foster innovation
by Denise WildnerRead on Medium ...
The Digital Product School Munich is where interdisciplinary teams learn how to build digital products that solve real-world problems.
We believe that great products are created by diverse teams. At the Digital Product School, interaction designers, software engineers, data scientists and product managers from all over the world are working together across disciplines to create great products in a lean and agile way.
Learn from experts with years of experience. Our mentors, coaches and workshop facilitators come from great companies like …
We are user-centric. Our teams find solutions to real problems they've validated before. And they rule out bad ideas through experiments. The good ideas are then built in an agile manner.
Teams work either on problem spaces provided by our partner companies or they tackle their own problems as a so-called »Wild Team«.
Digital Product School is a full-time training program by UnternehmerTUM in Munich, Europe's biggest Entrepreneurship Center. There are three batches per year, usually starting in January, May, and September – and lasting for 3 months.
It's your chance to build digital products in a diverse and cross-functional team – to solve real-world problems around mobility and transportation. In a realistic startup environment, we grow the next generation of digital product makers.
DPS is all about working in an agile team. You will work in weekly sprints and proceed with your product every day. To gain these experiences you have to be on-site and continously exchange with your team.
Every applicant who gets accepted will receive a scholarship of 750 EUR per month.

Our industry partners set the challenges the teams will work on. And they provide some of the team members for our so-called »Company Teams«. These teams work with talents like you to find out how far they can get within three months – all the while working lean and agile. Our partners also support the teams with technology, access to data and interview partners.
Our teams are »cross-functional«. This means that product managers, interaction designers, software engineers and artificial intelligence engineers work together to find out what the user needs and to build the product.
Product Managers are responsible for defining a product that solves discovered problems and driving decision-making. They also take care of the team's resources.APPLY AS PM
Interaction Designers understand how users and technology communicate with each other and focus on designing engaging interfaces with well thought out behaviours.APPLY AS IxD
Software Engineers bring ideas to life through coding. They engineer systems that are scalable, secure and usable. They do amazing things that look like magic to others.APPLY AS SE
Artificial Intelligence Engineers use algorithms to identify data patterns, build self-learning systems and automate repetitive work. By doing this they take a product to a whole new level.APPLY AS AI
