The study of organizational behavior is the study of the structure, functioning and performance of organizations, and the behavior of groups and individuals within them.

Pugh, Organization Theory: Selected Readings (1971)

Organizational behavior is neither fish nor fowl: it is a multidisplinary social science that straddles psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science and more. The subject is relatively young one, it first became a subject area at Harvard Business School in 1962. The name is shorthand, as an organization does not "behave", so the field is about the activities and interactions of people in an organizational setting.
