Who creates the agile project charter and the product vision at the beginning of the project?
Is any role for the agile development team in this stage?

Hi Hussam,

Below is some info for you with more reference material to read if you like.

Agile Product Vision —

From PMI’s Learning Library: Agile project management with Scrum

The Product Owner represents the single voice of the customer, and creates, manages, and owns the Product Vision. The Product Vision details the purpose of a Product, the aim with which the Product is being created and what it intends to achieve for customers and users. The Product Vision describes a future shape of the Product and what problems it tries to solve or what ambitions it tries to achieve.

The Product Owner may conduct a Strategy Meeting at the beginning of a project with key management Stakeholders, a Project Manager/Coach, and a Scrum Master. Strategy Meetings are driven by a vision associated with a specific strategic business need or goal. The Product Owner leads the planning session, establishes ground rules, and documents the outputs. The vision is framed as a strategy with associated goals and objectives. Out of the Strategy Meeting will come the artifact, the Product Vision Statement. The Development Team would be involved next in a Release Planning Meeting where the Product Vision would be reviewed.

Agile Project Charter —

From the Agile Practice Guide, ©2017 PMI, pp. 49-50.

5.1 Chartering the Project and the Team

A servant leader may facilitate the chartering process. A team can coalesce by working together, and the project charter is a great way to start working. In addition, team members may want to collaborate to understand how they will work together.

At a minimum, for an agile project, the team needs the project vision or purpose and a clear set of working agreements. An agile project charter answers these questions:

• Why are we doing this project? This is the project vision.
• Who benefits and how? This may be part of the project vision and/or project purpose.
• What does done mean for the project? These are the project's release criteria.
• How are we going to work together? This explains the intended flow of work.

Hope this helps in your understanding.
