Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

organizational behaviour

an umbrella term for theories and disciplines concerned with human behaviour in ORGANIZATIONS and the influences upon it. Approaches with this focus include INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, OCCUPATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY, ORGANIZATIONAL ANALYSIS and the SOCIOLOGY OF WORK. Though the boundaries between these are not distinct, they differ according to the emphasis they accord to individual or collective behaviour, and the relative importance they attach to structural (societal or organizational) or inter-personal determinants.
