It is important to get the nucleus of a team started off correctly; see DysfunctionalTeam for helpful approaches.  This team should be weighted in favour of expertise, with the less experienced people phased in when the project needs to grow.  The nucleus of key people start by concentrating on the important issues of the project, and once these are started off correctly, they can spare some time for the distractions of skills and knowledge transfer when bringing more people on board.
