Employ experts to fill a role, staff the role around this expertise. It would be good to have the flexibility to place staff in any role and have them do a good job, but all roles require a degree of expertise. Ensure the core of expertise is there for each role.
It is unusual now for an organization to attempt to staff a team without the appropriate expertise, though this may still happen in small organizations with few available people. Unfortunately, appropriate expertise can be expensive to employ. However, studies have shown that the most productive people can be up to 20 times more productive than the least productive.
