Like all other manager in a hotel, the executive housekeeper uses available resources to attain objectives set by top management executives. Resources include people, money, time, time, work methods, materials, energy, and equipment. This Resources are in limited supply, and most executive housekeeper will readily  admit that they rarely have all the resources they would like. Therefore, an important part  of the executive housekeeper's job is planning how to use the limited resources available to attain the hotel's objectives.

             The  executive housekeeper uses objectives set by the general manager as a guide in planning more specific, measurable goals for the housekeeping department. For example, one of the executive housekeeper's first planning activities is to clarify the department's cleaning responsibilities and to map strategies for carrying out these responsibilities effectively. Strategies will identify the types of cleaning task and indicate how frequently the task must be performed.
