Abstract: Motivators and demotivators are key factors in software productivity. Both are also critical to the success of Agile software development. Literature reports very diverse and multidimensional critical factors affecting the quality of Agile software development, thus, there is a need to extract and map required factors systematically for wider implications. The classification of anticipated factors and sub-factors is also desired to simplify their identification and definition. The reported research focuses on the systematic mapping of motivators and demotivators in Agile software development. A systematic mapping literature study has been performed to shed light on scattered critical factors for software engineers, affecting productivity and understanding of Agile viewpoints. Additionally, this study categorizes the extracted motivators as organization, people and technical. Whereas, the sub-factors’ categorization has been concentrated, which contributes to the motivators at grass root level. This research alleviates the problems of identification, definition and classification of the critical factors in agile software development for both practitioners and researchers.
