I do that as well. Though, I'm still testing what my own process must be like.

As far as I fully understand your request, what you need is a custom agenda

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      '(("W" "Waiting"
         todo "WAIT" nil)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
