The Legend Computer Group Company was listed as the largest enterprise in the Chinese information technology industry. Officially, the company describes itself as a new type of state-owned enterprise that has emerged from China's economic reform, particularly the reform of the science and technology (S&T) system. This chapter describes Legend's history and its market performance and expansion in the computer industry. Legend was, and still is, a very successful enterprise, categorized as a state-owned enterprise because it was set up by a state research institute. What set Legend apart from the traditional state-owned enterprises, is the kind of operational principles Legend learned and implemented from non-governmental S&T enterprises such as Stone. Legend became a model of what was later called ‘one academy, two systems’, crystallized by the leadership of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in conjunction with the strategy of reforming the nation's science and technology system.
