Most of existing workflow systems are rigid since they require to completely specify processes before their enactment and they also lack flexibility during their execution. This work proposes to view a workflow as a set of cooperative and adaptive agents interleaving its design and its execution leading to an emergent workflow. We use the theory of Adaptive Multi-Agent Systems (AMAS) to provide agents with adaptive capabilities and the whole multi-agent system with emergent "feature". We provide a meta-model linking workflow and AMAS concepts, and the specification of agent behavior and the resulting collaborations. A simulator has been implemented with the Make Agent Yourself platform.
