My work explores the impact of collaborative infrastructure on support for resilient, mission-driven organizations and the role of capacity building organizations in driving complex sector change. My goal is to understand how organizational structures, innovations, and new practices that emerge from collaborative networks create value and contribute to healthy organizations and the communities they serve. Shared resources, improved knowledge-management systems, interdisciplinary teams, and inter-organizational coordination are examples of such structural innovations that create long-term value for stakeholders and can catalyze social innovation and broader sector-wide transformation.<br><br>My current research explores these topics in the context of the low-income rental housing market in Cleveland, Ohio. Through the lens of organizational theory and behavioral frameworks, I am scanning the complex landscape of low-income rental housing in order to understand the types of institutional logics and relational practices that might enable more coordinated, mutually reinforcing, and equitable resource distribution across the multi-sector rental housing sphere.

Dissertation Title: "Breaking the Thought Barrier: How Individuals Transform their Lifeworld to Create Transformative Change in their Field"

Kiko is interested in what motivates and enables people to do extraordinary things, often under great duress and considerable personal cost. She is particularly interested when people create a paradigm shift – changing the way we view the world, changing our view of what is possible; or when people are pathfinders, creating a new business model or market. She aims to understand the mechanics, psychological and psycho-social, of what prompts people to set off into uncharted territory, rewriting the rules to create a new, revolutionary way of doing things. Kiko previously consulted in strategic organizational alignment, change leadership, and innovation at McKinsey, Accenture and for the Insead Blue Ocean Strategy Network. She has an MBA from Insead and a BA in History from Yale.
