In this episode, young Miranda finds herself upset due to a group robotics project that seems to be in jeopardy due to lack of follow-through on the part of her teammates, only to learn that they had not let her down after all. This is doubly important to Miranda as the “project” concerns someone dear to her.

In an odd twist (pun intended) in our tale, Miranda’s struggles with this robotics project triggers Aunt Natalie’s memories of a battle for pretzel supremacy, where (let’s be honest), the real winners were the pretzel-munching public. Keep in mind that Aunt Natalie’s story took place in a golden age, well before the Atkins diet and its global war on carbohydrates.

In addition to the project not being in jeopardy, Aunt Natalie takes the opportunity to teach her niece an important life lesson: Sometimes group projects are a pain, but when you have the right people all working toward the same goal, the results can be amazing.

The episode concludes with SAP executives discussing how innovation often requires more than the implementation of new technology and software; it requires an enterprise dedication to doing things differently.
