The first stage will evolve into the second and the second into the third. All will be informal so modifications/retreats can be easily made and there will be no grand announcements until the end, if ever.
As one stage blurs into another, the participants will gain additional information and greater levels of trust in the mission and in one another. The activities will be designed with the overall mission in mind. A sense of community will be nourished and guarded.
Any complexity should trigger alarm bells because that will mean we're slipping off-track.
