Good to note that you have taken stock of your career. As a part of taking stock, you should make a career plan. Part of this career plan is to acquire qualification that is appropriate to your career goal. As a part of your career planning, do SWOT Analysis as well.
Addition of qualification is one thing but then whatever qualification you add, try building analytical skills in you. It is lack of these skills that holds back growth of large number of professionals.
About SWOT analysis again. Recently I read in Economic Times that there is one company called IPSoft. This company is floated by one Chetan Dubey in US. This company is trying to develop software whereby it is possible to automate the outsourced processes. If that happens then huge chunk of manpower that IT/ITES sector employs, will become redundant. Possibly year 2020 could be game changer. So take into account this fact as threat in SWOT analysis.

SWOT and career road mapping is something I have done already but my intent was more on the ground on beefing up my academics. Goes without saying that I don't only mean to beautify the profile by merely adding these academic pursuits. Agree with you completely on developing the analytical edge during the course of daily work. I want to check that lack of a strong academic background may not prove to be a handicap in the reaching the senior levels in HR dept. If that may then I would like to start taking action to avoid that situation at this point in time.
