An organization or organisation (see spelling differences) is an entity, such as an institution or an association, that has a collective goal and is linked to an external environment. The word is derived from the Greek word organon, itself derived from the better-known word ergon which means "organ" .

In the social sciences, organisations are studied by researchers from several disciplines, the most common of which are sociology, economics, political science, psychology, management, and organisational communication.
