We present action-development-relationship (ADR) processes as a social innovation design methodology for creating strategic partnerships and networks. We describe our dementia project in relation to four practical cases: “Run Tomorrow,” “Futures,” “the Fujinomiya Project,” and “Words for a Journey.” These all consist of a series of ADR processes. We discuss how a series of ADR processes is suitable for addressing the ambiguous circumstances that make up social issues and the ways in which it is able to promote mutual understanding among multiple stakeholders.
