An often-overlooked but crucial part of forming an investment thesis around any company is taking a look at management, and here we focus on the management team at General Motors . When CEO Daniel Akerson came on board just over two years ago, he did initiate some shakeups of the company's top tier, so should investors be concerned about instability at the top, or was this a case of doing what needed to be done to get the company on track?

In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos tells investors what he likes about GM's management, and what are some potential headwinds we should keep an eye on.


It's true that decades of mismanagement of General Motors led to a painful bankruptcy in 2009, but it emerged a leaner, stronger company. GM's turnaround, however, is still a work in progress. Investors around the world are wondering if GM has what it takes to reclaim its former glory.
