@squeermish, have you instead tried less competitive approach like CodeKata or other deliberate techniques ?

comment Competition ideas between test teams
I participated in the CodeRetreat when pairs of programmers "competed" in solving a task in six turns. Each turn each participant was solving the same task but with a different peer. Only few pairs have solved the task completely but no one was complaining about that. The benefit was everyone has learned various ways of approaching the same problem. In case of OP, to avoid hostile attitude between teams I would mix people coming different teams and would give tasks not directly related to ongoing work.

Right, read in this way it is on-topic. I removed my downvote.

Do you have a problem 1) how to check-out a code from SVN to the machine were Jenkins is or rather 2) how to deploy artifacts to the remote machine?

Lucas, please use code formatting that preserves white spaces. It is hard to read now. You may prefix it with <!-- language: lang-none --> to avoid syntax highlighting.

Downvoting. That's a programming question, nothing to test/debug even here ;-)

comment ArrayOutOfBoundException when reading test data from Excel
@Phil, I agree. Still the question can teach users how to isolate a defect, which is an important skill in testing :-) That's why in my answer I tried to to demonstrate how to read logs, code and API documentation instead of giving a solution only.

What skills those competitions have to improve? My impression is that the question focus more on the solution rather than investigate what is the real problem in the teams. I.e., it might be wrong to solve this problem, especially if the problem is unclear.

What about making an hour or two of competition to design test cases and find bugs in an app. Competing would not be part of everyday work, but a single event, after which participants could share with their strategies and reflect on them?
