Mission-Critical

Mission-critical is any component critical to the survival or continued success of the team or organisation.

Components can include systems, tools, activities and personnel.[1]

Operations can get negatively affected when a mission-critical component fails or produces substandard results. For that reason, risk-aware leaders may create redundancies with components e.g. with personnel.
