In this paper, I analyze the organization of tasks or activities by a collection of agents. I begin by formally defining organized collections and robustly organized collections of agents in the context of a simple model. Within this framework, I demonstrate that organized collections and robustly organized collections exist and equilibria need not be organized. I then test whether adaptive agents can self-organize in this environment. I find that simple behavioral rules can lead to nearly organized, fairly robust collections of agents.
