Ghita’s research focuses on tensions arising from interorganizational collaborations, incl. the dynamic interplay between disparate partners collaborating on joint projects. In particular, Ghita is passionate about understanding relations between different roles and competing demands and how boundaries between different logics are put at stake by (new) ways of managing. building on Niklas Luhmann’s organization theory and notion of paradox, Ghita strives to develop new frameworks for the study of organization and management exploring how boundary issues and tensions can hold the key to innovation.
Empirically, Ghita has focused on collaborative innovation engaging with fields, such as open innovation, open governance and voluntary work, investigating management practices occurring in and across the public, private and voluntary sector, such as between professionals and volunteers in online user communities, crowdsourcing, and cross-sector partnerships.
Prior to joining MPP, Ghita has held research positions at the University of Cambridge, DTU, and MIT. Ghita also has experience as consultant and game designer within academic, commercial, and public environments using game-based simulations to support leaders in innovation and change management. She holds a BA in Philosophy from Roskilde University (RUC) and a MSocSc in Political Communication & Management from Copenhagen Business School.
