    Semantic problem

    Dear teachers, I have some difficulty in understanding the underlined sentence below. Could you give me a hint on that? Thank you.

    "However, in a day and age when performance capacity and degrees of perfection mean everything and organizations strive to become 'best in class,' anything less than one's best detracts from the results, if not survival, of the whole organization." - Extracted from a book called the "Adversity Quotient"

    If organisations do not do their very best, the results of the company will be negatively affected. It is possible that even the survival of the company will be at risk.
