Let δ be a maximal coaction of a locally compact group G on a C*-algebra B, and let N and H be closed normal subgroups of G with N ⊆ H. We show that the process IndG / HG which uses Mansfield's bimodule to induce representations of B ⋊δ G from those of B ⋊δ | (G / H) is equivalent to the two-stage induction process IndG / NG ○ IndG / HG / N. The proof involves a calculus of symmetric imprimitivity bimodules which relates the bimodule tensor product to the fibred product of the underlying spaces.
