Existing studies comprise of motivators and demotivators of ASD, which exist in dispersed form. That is why there is a need of a detailed systematic literature review to review the factors and sub-factors effecting motivators and demotivators in ASD. A comprehensive review is executed to gather the critical success factors of motivator and demotivator of Agile software development. Thus, the ongoing study classifies motivator and demotivator factors into four classes, i.e., people, organization, technical and process.
