The Five Stages are actually different to the 6 Phases of a Revit User (you need to read it if you haven’t before).
I think its interesting that both of these could be roughly mapped to the Gartner Hype Cycle.
Does anyone want to take the time to draw a Five Stages – 6 Phases – Hype Cycle diagram (mapping each element to specific points on the hype cycle)? I think it would be quite popular in the Revit blogosphere… Go bloggers go

I actually asked on Twitter yesterday whether anyone was willing to overlay Gartner’s Hype Cycle© with the HOK Macleamy Curve http://www.msa-ipd.com/MacleamyCurve.pdf after posting the chart http://bimandintegrateddesign.com/2012/02/27/the-state-of-ipd-and-bim-an-owners-perspective/
Your application is actually a much better comparison.
