A multi-agent organization operating in an open environment has to adapt itself at run-time when the global knowledge of the organization changes unpredictably at run-time. In this paper this problem is named as organizational adaptability and two new patterns called as Ontology Perception and Society Merging are introduced to provide generic and reusable organizational solutions to this problem. Each pattern first defines a unique situation that causes a change in the organizational global knowledge then models the organizations’ behavior in terms of responsibilities and collaboration of participating agents to solve this problem.
