You get to decide.

retrospective techniques (which are certainly useful tools) and more
to do with the fact that retrospection is not equivalent to
introspection either individually or collectively. A tendency towards
superficial examination of past history without a requisite amount of
serious introspection cannot have a significant impact on future
development. As with all things Scrum related, teams will get out of a
retrospective whatever they put in. The trick for the ScrumMaster or
coach is to inspire them to be more introspective individually and as
a group. I don't think there is a mnemonic or prescriptive technique
that provides that.
