That is an excellent comparison! Kudos! It really points out some of the finer details of why the first example was a good one. In general, it's more important to know why some strategies work than to have a laundry-list of previously successful strategies. Don't ask yourself what workplace characteristics are conducive to good workers: ask yourself why those characteristics work. The details can change, but the underlying reasons those details were good at one time remain the same. While you didn't specifically point out the underlying reasons per se, you certainly pointed out that the underlying reasons aren't dependent upon the form they take.
