Multiagent organizations contain numerous objects and relationships which must be included in the computation of an organization state. The ability to transition from state to state over the organization's life is required for a system to be considered adaptable. State transition has traditionally been captured simply as reorganization in numerous multiagent systems. Transition is actually two distinct processes, initial organization and reorganization. Computation of these two processes has different requirements and inputs and produces different outcomes. This paper delimits the differences between these distinct processes.
