In theory the team needs to reorganise itself.  Current team members
need to accept that the number of team members is not large enough to
cope with all the work and accept competent people in their team.
They need to do the selection and training.  This is the theory IMHO.

However, this can only work when a) the team itself acknowledges that
there is a lack of manpower and b) is willing to work together with
new people.

Everything can be learned if one is willing.  As long as somebody can
understand computer languages they can debug the processes and scripts
long enough to know what's going on.
