Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager 2012 SCCM 2012 complexity

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.

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?
