A command center is any place that is used to provide centralized command for some purpose. A command center facilitates an organization to function as designed, to perform day to day operations regardless of what is happening. No one notices it is there, but everyone knows who is in charge when there is some trouble.

A command center is a ground zero of leadership and guidance to ensure that service and order are supported. Its main task is to watch the environment and react to what occurs.
