Lean kanban was never meant for project management, it is a process management and demand leveling technique.

Agile card boards like this bear little resemblance to Kanban, but the name caught on with the original Kanban software book. It is still a decent book though, and does in fact cover many of the principles of lean kanban. That said, I've rarely met a team using a kanban board that is familiar with the book or the principles of kanban.

Besides what others have commented, I'd like to point some more metrics that help you model your board:

- Task classes.

- Lead time.

- Cycle time.

- Number of backward movements for any list.

- Cumulative card evolution.

There are some good books about this subject:

- David J. Anderson's Kanban (https://www.amazon.com/Kanban-Successful-Evolutionary-Techno...)

- Actionable Agile Metrics for Predictability: An Introduction (https://www.amazon.com/Actionable-Agile-Metrics-Predictabili...)

Shameless plug: checkout my personal project DjangoTrelloStats that measures these metrics for you: https://github.com/diegojromerolopez/django-trello-stats (include a somewhat Trello synchronization tool).
