Since the start of JUMP in 2007 I have had this on my cubicle wall.
I've been waiting for the stages to tick through, but they really haven't, and we've been basically stuck at phase 2 for the last 4 years. This is probably because, in Japan, the goals of projects are sufficiently woolly that you have to try really hard to fail. But then, last Friday, the samurai struck, and Phases 3-7 all happened simultaneously. I'm not sure whether we will be able to negotiate anything sensible, but at present I feel like giving it all up and going and sitting under that tree in Kenchoji.
