The Basics - What are the basics an organization new to the CPC needs to know?

The Best Practices and general literature (including CPC books) can be pretty overwhelming for a new operation trying to quickly start doing ex situ conservation work, or the garden may have very limited staff and/or infrastructure. Is it possible to summarize/create an essentials checklist? Does one exist already? It would be great to offer a succinct reference on how and where should a new group should start the work of ex situ conservation.
