Method: 

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to let drain.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and transfer to a large platter. Scatter bacon, cranberries, goat cheese and parsley over the top and serve.
