You don't.  If I have understood the question correctly, you are looking for a display like

  • col 1, col 2, col 3, col 4
  • ------
  • col 5, col 6, col 7, col 8

This would cause layout problems for almost every user of boards, and so Atlassian have not done this.  Your only option is

  • col 1, col 2, col 3, col 4, col 5, col 6, col 7, col 8

Hi venkatesh,


Go to the configuration of your board. 

Select colums create/remove/rename the colomns you need.

Drag the statusses in to the desired column. 





But 11 columns won't look great in an Agile board.

The original post may also be referring to the transition buttons in an issue view screen, it's not clear
