Organizational behavior is the combination of four areas of study—psychology, social psychology, sociology, and anthropology. While each of these areas involves an examination of people and their interactions, the focuses are quite different:

- Social Psychology examines how people work in groups.
- Sociology explores how systems work within the organization.
- Anthropology examines how culture works within the organization.
