Abstract: 
This paper explores the concept of a reverse diffusion of knowledge, that is, the transfer flowing from a company's subsidiary to its home plant. The article presents the empirical evidence gathered in General Motors UK and Poland, where the reverse diffusion of a concept of the built-in quality took place. Lastly, the implications of our findings for future research are discussed.
