Three Elements Are Common To Most

Definitions Of Crisis Handled By

Dr. Rick C. Ernst:

An outside threat to the individual and/or the organization or by the misappropriate actions of the individual or the organization

2. The element of surprise

3. A short decision time

This kind of crisis is a process of transformation where the old system can no longer be maintained. 

Therefore the fourth defining quality is the need for proper response or in many cases a change. If a proper response and/or change is not needed, the event could more accurately be described as a failure or incident.
