This document is the final report on Global 2000, a 3-year workplace literacy project during which 87% of the 805 employees of 10 Massachusetts manufacturing companies enrolled in workplace literacy classes offered by the Continuing Education Institute (CEI). A total of 61 classes were held and 41 employee-participants earned high school diplomas through CEI's adult diploma program. "Project Overview: What Does 'Good' Look Like?" (Lloyd David), constitutes the first 25% of the document. Discussed in the overview are the following: CEI's involvement in workplace education; lessons learned: The Global 2000 Model National Workplace Literacy Project; project management; demand for workplace education; the project's goals, classes, curriculum development, adult diploma program; the formative, summative, and external evaluations of the project; and dissemination activities. Appended to the overview are the following: list of Global 2000 project representatives; program statistics; and selected media coverage. The next section of the document consists of case studies of the 10 project sites, written by Katherine Archer.
