Mission Critical Teams (MCT) are small (4-12 agents) integrated groups of indigenously trained and educated experts that leverage tools and technology to resolve rapidly emergent complex adaptive problems in an immersive, but constrained (300 seconds or less) temporal environments where the consequence of failure can be a catastrophic loss. These teams are able to consistently innovate as fast as the problem sets are adapting by moving their focus from trying to predict what problem set might emerge, to developing to human factors who will ultimately be facing the problem set.
