A prescient technical document, comprising detailed, step by step instructions to install something that hasn't been designed or engineered yet. Much like a Rundown or the Penske file, a runbook is created with extremely vague instructions or purpose but is worked on without question. The inability to clarify instruction is directly proportional to the duration of attempts to author the runbook.
