You must  have an Adding Board role to add Boards.

In the cloud world, when you create a new board, you can choose to create a new Office 365 group or not. In case creating groups is disabled in your tenant, users won't be able to create a new office 365 group. They will be able to attach only existing groups to a board.

To see more options like "Create a new Office 365 group" or "Attach to existing Office 365 group" select Show advanced options button.
