I have made Helles three ways, single infusion, step mash, and triple decoction. I really don't see meuch difference between the flavor with a single infusion and a decotion except for maybe a bit more melanoiden character. So in my estimation, the decoction with today's highly modified malts is a waste of time on my brew day unless you are trying to recreate the old German techniques.
My Helles is the only beer in which I do a step mash. Got this from Horst's style book for Helles.
protein rest at 122 degrees for 30 minutes
low sacchaification rest at 140 degrees for 15 minutes
high saccharification rest at 156 degrees for 15 minutes
mash-out for 10 minutes at 168 degrees
Does it really make that much difference, probably not as Denny says, but this is one beer that I like to mess with. Is it a PITA, well yes kinda because of all the heating steps (RIMS system aided with an external heat source to help raise the temperature to the next step a bit faster) All other beers use a single infusion mash.
But if you are looking to do a step mash, this is the technique I use for a Helles and it comes out pretty malty, which is a characteristic for the style. If you want it drier, you could bump up the low saccharification temp to maybe 146-148 and eliminate the high saccharification step. But that is your choice.
Just my .02
