How important are the fractions of a second in your conversion?  The fractional seconds are being ignored by the posted solution as well as this alternative solution.
[System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDateTime('20160801164123.157000+000').ToString('yyyyMMdd HH:mm:ss')

Open in new window


Note: I find some of these methods rather verbose.  I prefer something like this:
$DTC=[System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]
$DTC::todatetime('20160801164123.957000+000').ToString('yyyyMMdd HH:mm:ss')
