tâche stratégique

on pourrait ajouter "stratégique pour l'activité", mais en français "never state the obvious"

    c'est ce que j'utilise pour divers clients qui utilisent ce jargon dans leurs documents US

tâche fondamentale

This term seems to fit best into the given context. The English "critical" implies "indispensable, of utmost importance" - in French, "fondamental" rather than "critique". The qualifier "business" should be left out altogether because in French, too many qualifiers are considered redundant when they have already become clear through the context.
Browsing for "tâche fondamentale", I found this example among many
" ..vous assiste dans cette tâche
fondamentale qu'est la réalisation de la (des) bannière(s). Le coût du ... "
