The Lesson

Just as not every branch should be used as a leg of the tower, not every person should be a key member of the team. Some individuals are better suited to a supoort role.

This is not universal. Not all projects have a position for supporting the primary workers. Likewise, in some projects a team member might be relegated to a supporting role while in others he would be a keystone.
