Yes, you can get a lot out of short ST workouts.
By lifting heavy with fewer reps, not only will you complete each set faster, but it is more effective ST. Aim at something challenging enough to fatigue your muscles in 4-8 reps, rather than 12+ reps.
Compound exercises work several different muscles simultaneously, allowing you to get an all-body workout in just a few moves. Examples of coumpound exercises include squats and pushups.
As for sets, you get about 70% of the maximum possible advantage from the 1st set, 90% from the 2nd, 95% from the 3rd, etc.
So by combining all these, you can probably get an all-body workout in just 10-15 minutes.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
