CPA Professional Education Program: Elective module – Performance management

Learn about the Performance Management elective module of the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP).

The CPA PEP’s elective modules provide you with the opportunity to explore your field of interest in greater depth. The objective of the Performance Management module is to equip you with the ability to:

  • contribute to strategic decision making
  • support effective governance
  • manage and mitigate risk
  • assess overall performance management

You will apply common frameworks for strategy, governance, risk and performance in more complex settings than dealt with previously, developing competencies used to focus an organization on:

  • improving performance
  • delivering sustainable value


The Performance Management module blueprint provides you with information on what to expect from the examinations, including the weighting placed on the different competencies and the study materials you can use while completing them.

Examples of performance management cases and evaluation guides

These case examples focus on performance management competencies, but also draw on core finance, strategy and financial reporting competencies. The evaluation guides provide solutions to the cases through a variety of assessments.
