Setting up a team...

Hire an experienced Revolution Consultant and then program it  
yourself and introduce your team to it in progress. Then you have  
control over the project instead of someone new to REV who will  
probably try to fit Rev into their thinking instead of their thinking  
into Rev. Secondly, the consultant can teach and inform and consult  
on the best practices and usage during the planing stage and if you  
get into trouble they are already familiar with the project and can  
step in to help in the actual programming.
You team will take the consultants lead and our lead and in the end  
get a great intro to Rev and it's paradigm.

Sounds like a win win to me.

Good luck and as someone on this list told me "Go for it, Just jump  
in and start"
