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 (NYSE:GM).

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.
