Currently learning SCCM 2012. My question is (possibly best answered by an SCCM administrator or contractor performing rollouts).

In order to deploy an operating system , send software updates requires you to go through several steps, and some of them you have to jump to dfferent parts of SCCM. My questions is how can somebody remmember all those steps? Or do systems admins and contractors write guides and keep them handy? and then just refer to them?

How can one best organise themselves for this product? Do admins create step by step guides? so that they dont miss out a vital step?

So yes, we do create "documentation", build documents, procedures, ...

Appending to what spravtek said, screenshots with highlighting are essential as well.  You'd be surprised how many users and even admins have difficulty locating a step on a page as it is sometimes not clearly visible.
