The present time has witnessed a diverse and multi generational workforce which more often than not proves to be a source of stress and conflict for many individuals, ultimately resulting in counter productive behaviors at work. This problem became the thrusting force to understand diverse, multi generational surroundings for better communication, collaboration and coordination. However, the first challenge in doing so is to define and classify generational cohorts, which requires examination of factors that are temporal, historical, developmental, cultural, technological and political. Thus, the present study is an examination of different criteria for definition and classification of a generational cohort by different researchers, through studies done in different regions over time, to be able to come up with a more comprehensive set of conditions to look at while engaging with the subject of generational studies. To meet this objective Systematic Review of thirty research papers from reputed journals was done. Sixteen different categorizations of generational cohorts across samples from America, Europe and Asian nations were found which were further examined for the basis of their classification. Separate analysis was also done for each cohort for the total sample and the findings are discussed to understand the points of agreement and disagreement among different researchers on the basis of the classification.
