Abstract : In the Leviathan dual-mode simulation, live subjects occupying managerial roles communicate with one another and with automated personnel. This communication takes place over the computer by means of pushbuttons and digital displays. Automated agents, carrying out the productive, technological work of the organization, receive and implement orders and decision rules. These reflect the intentions, policies, and plans of the higher-level, governing, live decision makers. The program requirements for the communication process from live managers to artificial agents, and for monitoring transgressions of authority are established. (Author)
