Last January, Burns announced she would split the $18 billion Xerox into two publicly traded companies; one focused on document technology, still named ­Xerox, and the other, to be called Conduent, on business process outsourcing. Burns will continue as chair of ­Xerox but will give up the CEO role at year’s end. She tried to transform Xerox into an IT services shop, but revenue kept falling, dipping 8% in 2015. It’s not clear what will come next for Burns, the first African-American woman to run a Fortune 500 company.
