It is possible to establish different types of agent organizations accord-ing to the type of communication, the coordination among agents, and the type of agents that comprise the group. Each organization needs to be supported by a co-ordinated effort that explicitly determines how the agents should be organized and carry out the actions and tasks assigned to them. This paper presents a new global coordination model for an agent organization. This model is unique in its concep-tion, allowing an organization in a highly dynamic environment to employ self-adaptive capabilities in execution time.
