The Public Sector Conducive Ecosystem, or EKSA, is an effort to strengthen public sector services in the country by the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU). EKSA was first introduced in 2014, a continuation and rebranding of the Public Sector 5S Practice to highlight a more conducive and relevant work environment and culture with the progress and development of the public sector in Malaysia.
The initiative introduced by MAMPU is an improvement in the implementation of 5S Practices and this move is in line with efforts to strengthen the culture of high-performing and innovative organizations among public sector agencies that will be the practice of all public sector agencies. It should also be understood that EKSA is not to replace the 5S practices practiced earlier but EKSA is to strengthen the 5S Practice with an emphasis on a conducive environment and teamwork spirit that brings corporate image and professionalism. This branding also involves the auditing method used as the previous concept of & one size fits all; was seen as less accurate to meet the needs of all government agencies.
