We describe a framework for top-down centralized self-adaptive MASs where adaptive agents are "protocol-driven" and adaptation consists in runtime protocol switch. Protocol specifications take a global, rather than a local, perspective and each agent, before starting to follow a new (global) protocol, projects it for obtaining a local version. If all the agents in the MAS are driven by the same global protocol, the compliance of the MAS execution to the protocol is obtained by construction.
