One of the challenges with a SharePoint environment is managing the security. Who can see what? Can a person see what they're supposed to see?
SharePoint's out-of-the-box interface is limited in this area. Sure, you can tell which SharePoint groups or Active Directory groups have access to a resouce, but there's no easy way to find out who belongs to those groups from within SharePoint.
SharePoint Sushi (love the aconym - it stands for SharePoint Utility with a Smart Helpful Interface) is a great free tool which lets you view your SharePoint permissions from the user perspective.

Academic Colleges Group CEO shortlisted for International Business Leader of the Year award from NZTE. Pretty good stuff
It's been a long journey for ACG from its beginnings as Senior College of New Zealand in 1994, Since I joined the company in 2001 the growth has been pretty spectacular. There have been challenges along the way - SARS, the Asian financial crisis, the issues with the quality of English Language providers (do we remember Carich and ModernAge) to name a few, but ACG has been well-managed through all of these issues, with rolls constantly growing and more importantly, the quality of the teaching and learning increasing.
Maybe the group doesn't promote itself and its achievements enough - to manage 4,500 students across six schools operating out of eight campuses in three countries is quite an achievement.
Personally I'm feeling quite proud to be able to work with someone such as this, and I hope that Ian progresses to win this award.
