Imperial Tobacco Limited/Limitee B February I0, 1981 Dr. Martin Oldman B.A.T. Co. Ltd. Group Research & Development Southampton, ENGLAND Dear Martin: Here is a copy of the French work that we have initially conducted on Project Image. I hope you can find someone who can translate It for you since some of the information in it and the hypotheses are very interestlns. We should be in a quantitative phase of the exercise very soon. I also recently received an outline of the number of projects that you people handed to look at in the next few months which some of the people in the department are very interested in. So if it is possible, it would be nice to receive copies of the reports as they become available.

The llst of dimensions thac we have here was created by using triads but not the repertory grid. We found that when we separated the mechanism of collating the information from them=re creative process of defining the constructs, that the whole thing worked a whole lot better. The only thing is that now the ranking of these dimensions has to be done by different respondents and those who created them, but it is a start. The next step is to go back and try the approach in Quebec and then get a small quantitative sorting of these results. We w111 let you know what happens. Best personal regards. Hope you had a merry ChrlsCmas. Sincerely yours, Robert Bexon Manager Research Group ~q,Blrb Enclosure 0 CY', CO BatCo document for PFSFC 1 March 1999
