Join three of our Center Stage podcast guests for a provocative dialogue on how knowledge coupled with unlearning enable innovation. Guest Larry Prusak highlighted the true competitive edge of knowledge, “When you have a project team, it matters far less what an individual knows. It matters greatly what the team knows.” Does this threaten the value of a project manager? Both Larry and guest Barry O’Reilly caution against knowledge becoming stale. Larry says, “Refresh the knowledge you have. Always be open. Always be learning.” But Barry believes you may have to throw some of what you know in the trash: "It’s…the inability to unlearn existing mindsets and behaviors that were effective in the past but now are maybe limiting your success." What does this mean for adhering to methodologies when faced with uncertain requirements, divergent stakeholders and evolving delivery methods? As Peter Temes points out, there is often a tension between managing for efficiency and managing for discovery. Does managing for efficiency hold you back from finding innovative ways of working?

Resolving Agency Issues in Client-Contractor Relationships: The Use of an Award Winning Teaching Case Study
The case study on resolving agency issues in client-contractor relationships was the winner of the 2019 DSI PMI Instructional Case Writing Competition. The author will present some theoretical background on the use of case studies in teaching and then introduce the case study itself and outline its potential use in online settings. The case study focuses on the management of relationships which has been acknowledged as a crucial element of project success. However, agency related issues such as goal conflict, information asymmetry or opportunistic behavior can make relationship management a real challenge.

This case study will provide unique insights into their approach and motivation.
