It's even more than just a specialization issue. Being a software development project manager, I bump up against this problem every now and then, usually in the form of an MBA type. I like to say that software development is not ditch digging. You can't throw more ditch diggers in there and get the ditch done faster. Even if they have the exact same skills, there is a lot to catch up on from how the piece they've been assigned fits into the whole puzzle all the way up to understanding the puzzle as a whole. As Moriender states, it's a risk to a SD project to "crash the tasks", in PM-speak, and it comes without a guarantee of positive returns. Can be done, but is very, very tricky to pull off.
