I would say so. It's not limited to SCRUM, you'll have to learn from experience whatever you're engaged in. But SCRUM does make it an explicit practice. Teams running their retrospectives once a week report a rapid progress on most all aspects of their team's work. (Given that retrospectives are correctly handled that is, there's no magic saving you from bad retrospectivity.)

I've also heard people talk about how respect for others grow with each retrospective. Some days ago I blogged on the Bagonca developer blog about how I think that you could probably skip all SCRUM practices, but retrospectives, and sooner or later (depending on where you start) reach a fruitful and productive process (equals a SCRUM-like processs in my book). And I know I'm not alone in this, check this article out: Agile is relative and dynamic

Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great (Paperback) Derby & Larsen ISBN-10: 0977616649
Is a great book on how to run retrospectives. The exercises could be used with teams that are not Agile or Scrum teams. I highly recommend it.
