    Not if

    Wendy: I really donít think Monty is the right person for this project. Heís too conservative in his thinking. We need someone whoís a risk taker.

    Burt: Monty will get the job done. Thatís the most important thing.

    Wendy: Not if the finished product is staid and boring. Our client wonít be happy with that.

    Burt: Okay, who do you have in mind?

    Wendy: I was thinking of giving the project to Lorenzo.

    - I don't get the meaning of "not if" in this context. What does it mean, Teachers?

    Thanks so much

    It means that getting the job done is not the most important thing if the product is boring.
