Adding resource to a project does not necessarily mean increased velocity

Recently got pointed in this direction to help explain this to the powers that be at the client where I'm working currently.

I was originally referring to a graph of project velocity that Ken Schwaber (http://courses.scrum.org/about/ken-schwaber) drew years ago whilst I was attending his certified scrum master course, which looked somewhat like this... (Note: the flat line is the loss in velocity period where the existing expert resource has to down tools to help bring up to speed the new resources added to the project).
