Even for someone like Anne Mulcahy, who had spent nearly 20 years at Xerox, collating its problems seemed next to impossible when she took over in 2001. At the time, the company was buried in $15 billion of debt and an SEC scandal. Onlookers were sure that Xerox was destined for Chapter 11. Despite this, Mulcahy managed to dig out by drastically cutting the workforce and steadily increasing innovations (they've launched 100 new products in the last three years).
