  25. 25. By Lenroy Jones, 3/28/2014 What is a playbook? A "playbook" is what a coach in sports uses to tell his/her team what to do, as in what plays to make and how to perform them. In business a manager will use a playbook to educate his staff on what to do in certain situations and/or communicate policy. It's easy to figure out why RIM chose to use this word, I believe it fits. Unfortunately it is a relatively American term (in its current use) so people outside of North America may not understand its meaning. It’s All About You! developing your professional playbook
