Abstract/Summary In this paper we have examined the motives of Lillian Gilbreth, a pioneer of scientific management, to pursue professional achievement, to attain powerful ranks of authority, and to build communal relationships. We identified the levels of these three needs/motives based on McClelland’s theory of needs for achievement, power, and affiliation using Winter’s scoring method that we applied to the autobiographical and biographical material about Gilbreth. The primary focus of our research was to assess the ranking of the three motives in Lillian’s motivational configuration in life with and without her husband Frank, another pioneer of scientific management movement.
